Cardamom & Vanilla Animal Crackers

A nice snack and easy to pack, these are a slightly sweet, light cookie.  It was a lot of fun for my four year old to roll out the dough and use the cookie cutters.   They cook fast, so there is immediate gratification.   I plan to experiment with the recipe for additional flavors, so keep an eye out for more attempts at homemade crackers.

Cardamom & Vanilla Animal Crackers Recipe

Mix the dry in a bowl:

1/2 cup wheat flour

1 cup white flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

pinch of salt

1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder

In a separate bowl or mixer, beat 1/2 cup vegetetable shortening & 1/4 cup white sugar.  Add 1 egg, 2 tablespoons water, splash of vanilla.
Gently mix wet & dry.  Dusting flour so it won’t stick, roll out dough and use cookie cutters.  Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes at 400 degrees.
