These old-time cinnamon jumbles have been one of my favorite drop cookies since childhood!
1/2 cup shortening (part butter or margarine) (use cold, not softened butter/margarine)
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 tsp McCormick pure vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp McCormick cinnamon
Mix shortening, 1 cup sugar, and egg well. Stir in buttermilk and vanilla.
In separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt. Add to rest of ingredients. Chill dough.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheet.
Sprinkle generously with mixture of 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon
Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 min. or until set, but not brown.
This year my sister’s family was acting as an angel for another family in need, and I wanted to bake a batch of these cookies to send along with her Christmas donations. I hope they liked them!
