  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream shortening, sugar, and eggs.
  • Sift together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Combine dry ingredients with egg mixture and stir in vanilla.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes on an ungreased baking sheet until lightly browned but still soft.


I like to slightly underbake my cookies and then let them continue heating on the pan, so I take them out at 8mins and then leave them on the cookie sheet for 2mins before removing them to cool.
