Pattern Sugar Cookies

4 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup solid vegetable shortening
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 eggs
colored candies, optional
colored sugar, optional
favorite frosting, optional

In a medium bowl, stir together flour, cream of tartar and soda.
In a large bowl, beat together butter and shortening until fluffy.
Gradually beat in powdered sugar and extracts. Beat in eggs, one
at a time. Gradually stir in the flour mixture until well blended.
Cover bowl with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 4 hours.

Preheat oven to 350. On a lightly floured surface, roll out a
portion of the dough to a 1/8 inch thickness, keeping remaining
dough chilled until ready to use. Cut out cookies with a floured
cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased or kitchen
parchment paper-covered baking sheets. Sprinkle with colored sugar
or candies as desired or leave plain to frost. Bake 8 to 11 minutes
or until set but not browned. Transfer to wire racks to cool.

Makes about 10 dozen 2 inch cookies.
