1 cup butter
1/2 c shortening
1 ½ cups white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder

A cup of butter is where you begin
Drop it in a bowl and give it a spin
Add the shortenin’, half a cup will do
Then some snowy white sugar, one and a half, then yoooouuuu…
Spin it like snowstorm, spin, spin, spin
Cookies make Santa Claus grin, grin, grin
It’s late and he’s comin’
better bake ’em up quick
For that little plate of happiness
(with carrot sticks)
Jolly old St. Nick
better bake ’em up quick)
Okay, second part…
Add vanilla, a teaspoon is nice
Then a couple eggs – two will suffice
Then 4 cups of flour, a teaspoon of powder
Little bakers, how are
we doin’ now?
“We’re spinnin’ like a snowstorm, spin, spin, spin…”
