Step 1

Mix shortening, sugar and eggs thoroughly.

Measure flour by sifting. Blend all dry ingredients; gradually add flour mixture; mix well.

Heat oven to 400˚F.

Roll into balls the size of walnuts. Roll in mixture of 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoon cinnamon.

At Christmas time I use 2 tablespoons of colored sugar with 2 teaspoon cinnamon.

Place 2” apart on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes. These cookies puff up at first, then flatten out.
