1 C sugar
1/2 C butter (softened)
1/2 C shortening
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
3 C flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 dozen wood popsicle sticks
1 recipe for caramel glaze

Preheat oven to 400 F. Mix the sugar, butter and vegetable shortening together in large mixing bowl. Add vanilla and the eggs. Then stir in the flour, baking soda and salt. Roll the dough about 1/4 inch thick on a flour dusted surface. Cut with a 3 inch round cookie cutter. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Insert a wooden stick horizontally into each cookie. Mold the dough slightly with your hand to form more of an apple shape. Bake for 8 or 9 minutes or until edges are a light golden brown. Let cool on cookie sheet for couple minutes before removing from cookie sheet. Allow cookies to cool completely on a wire rack. Spread glaze on top half of each cookie, then hold the cookie upright to allow the glaze to drizzle down. Yield: 24 cookies
