INGREDIENTS (Nutrition) * 1 cup shortening * 1 1/2 cups white sugar * 2 eggs * 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour * 1 teaspoon baking soda * 2 teaspoons cream of tartar * 1/2 teaspoon salt * 1 teaspoon almond extract * 2 tablespoons white sugar * 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon DIRECTIONS Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Cream the Shortening and the sugar together, add eggs and cream well, add baking soda, cream of tartar, salt and almond extract and cream well. Last add the flour and beat for about 2 minutes or until the mixture is very well mixed. Form into small little balls with your hand and roll in cinnamon and sugar, place onto a cookie sheet (parchment lined if possible) and cook in the oven until lightly brown, about 10 minutes. Cool on tin foil. These make great cookies and as long as you don't overbake them they are slightly crispy with a chewy center. Fantastic.
