1/2 c. shortening
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. sifted all-purpose flour

Cream shortening and butter; blend in sugar, salt, extracts, and crumbs. Work in flour, part at a time, combining well
after each addition. Chill at least 1 hour.

sugar over them. Store in closely covered tin.
