Sparkly Sugar Cookies

4 cups Cake flour (sifted)
2 1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Salt
2/3 cups Vegetable shortening or Crisco
1 1/2 cups White sugar
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla extract
4 tsp Milk

Sift the cake flour, baking powder and salt together. Mix the shortening, eggs, white sugar and vanilla extract until creamy. Stir in the flour mixture alternating with the milk. Chill at least 2 to 3 hours so it is easy to handle. Roll chilled dough to 1/8 inch thickness on a floured board. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees F for about 9 – 11 minutes. Let cool and frost as desired.
