This recipe has been passed down from my grandmother to my mother to me. It is a tradition to make these cookies every Christmas. Everyone love these cookies, my mother made me promise before she passed away that I would continue to make these cookies for everyone that works with me and my handicapped brother. And of course for my family. I average over 500 to almost a 1000 cookies each year. Hope you enjoy them.

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix together the cup of shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar and 2 eggs.
