1Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat shortening, milk and honey with electric mixer on medium speed until blended. Stir in remaining ingredients until well blended.
2Divide dough in half. On lightly floured cloth-covered surface, roll half of dough at a time 1/8 inch thick. Cut with about 1 1/4- to 1 1/2-inch animal-shaped cookie cutters. On ungreased cookie sheet, place cutouts about 1 inch apart.
3Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are very light brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
