Why I Love This Recipe

This is one of my favorite cookies. They are thin and crisp with a hint of cinnamon flavor. Cookies firm up as they cool.

Ingredients You'll Need

3/4 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 square (1 oz) unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Additional sugar


In a mixing bowl, cream shortening, sugar and egg. Add corn syrup and melted chocolate.

Sift together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; add to mixing bowl.

Roll into walnut-sized balls and roll in sugar; place 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes (cookies should be soft).

Cool 2-3 minutes before removing to wire racks.

Yield: 2 1/2 dozen
