Cookie House Recipe

4 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 cup shortening
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp. lemon extracts

Sift together flour, salt and soda. Cream together sugar, shortening, eggs and extracts. Combine the sifted ingredients and the creamed mixture.

Divide the dough into 3 equal balls. Roll 1/4" thick on baking sheet. Front and back of the house on the first rolled section. The 2 sides bake end to end and also the chimney on the second sheet. The roof on the 3rd sheet. (You probably have your own dimensions from your gingerbread house.)

Frosting to cement your house:
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
2 egg whites
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Sift together sugar and cream of tartar. Add egg whites and vanilla. Beat withan electric mixer until frosting holds its shape. Cover with a damp cloth when not using a portion.
