½ cup White sugar
1 cup Shortening
¼ cup Milk
2 Eggs
2 teaspoons Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla

Ella was a neighbor who was ten years older than God when I was a child. She always had these in her cookie jar, and usually would bake a dozen every day since the dough keeps so well. It is one of my all time favorites and I have never tasted them anywhere else.
