  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  3. Add in shortening.  Use your hands to work the shortening into the flour mixture until the dough starts to clump.
  4. Mix in egg, maple syrup and vanilla.  First, mix with a spatula or fork, then use your hands to knead the dough.
  5. Roll dough into a ball, flatten and roll between two sheets of parchment paper using a rolling pin (until dough is about 1/8-1/4 inch thick).
  6. Use cookie cutters to cut shapes in the dough.  Transfer the shapes from the parchment paper to a baking sheet.
  7. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes*
  8. Remove from oven, cool to room temperature on a cooling rack and frost.


*Cooking time will vary slightly depending on cookie size and thickness.
