Valentine Sugar Cookies

These cookies are better than Grandma's! It's important to use both shortening and butter in this recipe. The butter makes them soft on the inside, and the shortening makes them crisper on the outside. To frost them, I use equal parts of butter and cream cheese, 1 tablespoon of vanilla, and enough powdered sugar to pull it together.
