  1. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. Cream together Crisco and sugar, adding eggs, vanilla and lemon juice after well combined.
  3. Gradually add in flour mixture. Let chill for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven 400 degrees F.
  5. Roll out dough using flour/confectioners sugar blend to coat rolling pin/board and cookie cutters.
  6. Bake at 400 degrees F for 6-8 minutes on ungreased cookie sheet.
These are very good iced as well. These cookies, if stored in an airtight container, will remain chewy. For a crispy sugar cookie, use real butter instead of Crisco.
