Angel Food Cookies – Home Recipe

2 1/2 cups + 7 Tablespoons of all purpose flour

4 cups powdered sugar

2 1/2 cups Crisco shortening

1 tsp salt

! Tablespoon vanilla

! cup finely chopped walnuts

Cream  powdered sugar and shortening together in mixer.  Beat this mixture on medium speed for five minutes.

Add vanilla and beat until blended

Add flour and salt into the creamed mixture.

 Add walnuts.

Let dough sit for one hour!

Turn this mixture out onto a lightly floured surface.  Dust more flour across the top of the dough. Your dough will be slightly sticky.  With your hands or a scraper mix more flour into the dough mixture.  Your dough needs to be soft but pliable..not sticky.  Don’t over add flour.  You want it to be like a good sugar cookie dough.

Roll dough out about 3/8th of an inch thick.  Cut into circles.  Place on ungreased cookie sheets.  

Bake at  375 degrees for eight minutes.  

Cookies will be white.

Allow cookies to rest on hot sheet about 3-4 minutes ..then remove to rack. 

 Let cool

Cookies are better after sitting at least one day.

Carole also said that a second batch using the pastry flour has air pockets just like the original cookies.
