These are my grandson, Brenden's, favorite cookies. They are also the first cookies he ever helped me make when he was just a little guy!





  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cookies: Cream shortening, sugar and eggs together.
  3. Sift dry ingredients into first mixture. Roll dough into walnut-size balls.
  4. Cinnamon-Sugar: Mix cinnamon and sugar together. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. I usually bake mine for the least amount of time. This ensures that they will be soft!
