16 Mar

5 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 c shortening
1 stick margarine
1 1/4 c sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
4 eggs (Ener-G egg replacer)
+1/4 c sugar + 1/4 tsp cinnamon for rolling?

Preheat oven to 375′

Use a pastry blender to cut up shortening and margarine in flour until blended. Add sugar and blend again. Add one egg at a time then mix with hands. Put 1/4 cup sugar + 1/4 tsp cinnamon in a dessert dish. With three fingers pick up a lump of dough and make a very uneven ball. Without letting the ball go, dip it in the sugar covering all but one side of ball on which you will place on a greased cookie sheet about one inch apart. Bake 20-25 minutes until lightly brown.
