  • The best recipe I ever found was in the Better Homes and Garden's could probably google it!

  • 2 3/4 c flour
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 c shortening
    8 tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
    1 1/2 cups sugar, plus 3 tbsp
    2 large eggs
    1 tbsp ground cinnamon, Vietnamese preferably

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

    Sift the flour, baking soda, & salt into a bowl.

    With a mixer, blend shortening and butter. Add the 1 1/2 cups sugar and continue beating until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the flour mixture and blend until smooth.

    Mix the 3 tbsp sugar with the cinnamon in a small bowl. Roll the dough, by hand, into 1 1/2-inch balls. Roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar. Flatten the balls into 1/2-inch thick disks, spacing them evenly on unlined cookie sheets. Bake until light brown, but still moist in the center, about 12 minutes. Cool on a rack.
