Most Perfect Sugar Cookies

Honestly these cookies look like they
where pressed out by a cookie machine.
They are perfectly round and taste great.
Slightly browned on the bottom and cracked
just enough to say eat me you hungry fool.
Quite possibly the best sugar cookie ever.
This recipe makes about 24 cookies.

1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 370 degrees F.
In a mixing bowl cream together the
vegetable shortening with the sugar.
Whip in the egg, honey and vanilla.
In another bowl combine the flour
with the baking soda and salt.
Add the flour mixture to the wet
and blend until it holds together.
Roll dough into walnut sized balls and
place dough balls 1 inch apart on a
parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Press the dough balls down with a spoon.
Bake for about 12 minutes or until the
bottoms start to turn golden brown,
and cracks start to appear on the tops.
Remove to cool, don't they look great?
