Ethel's Sugar cookie's -Betty crocker

So the Banana's science project is to find out if kids can tell the difference between sugar vs. sugar substitute.  We used Truvia baking- specifically meant for baking cookies, etc... Once I made Chocolate Chip cookies with it and no one could tell.
I remember this recipe from when I was little. My mom had a similar book to the bloggers and I use to love baking out of it. Making these brought back a lot of memories.

3/4 cup shortening (or part butter or margarine)
1 cup sugar (and in our case 1/2 cup of truvia baking)
2 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Mix butter, shortening, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until it is fluffy. Add in flour, baking powder, and salt together. Divide dough into 2 discs.  Cover each with plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour or overnight.

When you're ready pre heat the oven to 400 degrees. Remove dough from refrigerator and allow to sit on the counter for a few minutes. On a cool cookie sheet drop cookies onto rack and bake for 6-8 minutes.
