Desired food coloring
Belnd together the butter and shortening. Add in a cup of flour. Now add in sugar, egg, milk, baking powder and vanilla. When full mixed in, add in salt and remaining flour.
Cover dough and put in fridge for 3 hours. Take a portion of dough to roll out to a 1/8th sheet. Use an egg-shaped cutter to create cookies. Bake on sheet at 375F for 8 minutes. Cool thoroughly.
