This recipe comes from the Capitol Cookies cookbooklet that features a cookie from each state capitol. This one comes from Denver, Colorado and was the favorite cookie of the late dad of a lady there. She wanted to share this recipe so others could enjoy dunking these cookies in coffee or milk as her daddy did.

1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup shortening
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
4 cups flour
2 tbsp cream

Cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs, then cream and vanilla.  Sift in dry ingredients. Mix well. Pinch into 1-inch balls and press with flour-dipped tines of fork onto well-greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees just until edges are light brown. Don't brown whole cookie.
