Here's the recipe that I got from my mother.

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • Mix the shortening and 1 1/2 cups of sugar together, thoroughly. Add the eggs and mix well.
  • Sift the dry ingredients together and add to the shortening/sugar/egg mixture.
  • Roll the dough into balls the size of small walnuts. Roll in a mixture of 2 T sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon.
  • Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for about 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned, but still soft.
