Sugar Cookies

I made these "monster" sugar cookies for a Halloween party we had. They didn't turn out as cute as I thought they would but they were delicious!!

1 1/3 cups shortening 
1 1/3 cups butter
3 cups white sugar
4 eggs
1 Tbs. + 1 tsp. almond extract 
7 cups flour
1 Tbs. + 1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. salt

1) preheat oven to 350

2) in a bowl cream together the butter, shortening & sugar. Stir in the eggs and almond extract. Stir in the flour, baking powder powder & salt until dough comes together. 

3) bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Remove after baking and let cool on a wire rack, then first & decorate!
