These aren't the prettiest cookies in the world, but I've been eating these cookies since I was about 10. I love the cinnamon that is added to these!

Thanks to Dad for sharing this recipe with me. Enjoy!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter, shortening, granulated sugar and brown sugar on high speed until very light and fluffy(about 5 min). Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla and lemon juice.

Use a scant 1/4 cup of dough for each cookie. Drop dough onto lightly greased baking sheets, spacing cookies about 3 inches apart. For soft cookies, bake in a 325 degree oven for 17 10 19 minutes or until a light golden brown; for crisp cookies, bake in a 350 degree oven for 16 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to racks and let cool. Store in an airtight container.
