Sugar drop cookies

1 cup shortening (I've used butter too)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
4 cups flour

Cream shortening, sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla.  In a separate bowl, sift flour, salt, soda and add to creamed mix. 

Preheat oven to 375F.  Form dough into 2" balls and place 2" apart on cookie sheet.  Bake for 8-10 minutes.  Cookies will finish cooking on a wire rack.

These are great pressed with colored sugar on top or frosting or just plain.
