Recipe Introduction

This cookie has everything I like in a cookie.

It has become a fast favorite of mine.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
1/2 half cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. almond extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbls ground cinnamon 2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp cream of tatar
2 tsp. ground nutmeg
2 tsp. grated orange peel
1 tsp grated lemon peel
1/2 tsp salt


In a mixing bowl cream butter, shortening and sugars.

Add eggs and extracts, mix well.

Combine the next 8 ingredients; gradually add to the creamed mixture.

Shape into 1 inch balls; roll in sugar.

Place 2" apart on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake at 350º for 10 to 15 min. until lightly browned.

My note: I press the balls down with a glass dipped in the sugar.
