SUGAR CINNAMON CRISPS - These are quick and easy cookies that you always have ingredients on hand for!
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup shortening or margerine
1 tsp vanilla
Cinnamon sugar mix made with 2 Tbsp white sugar blended with 2 tsp cinnamon.
Combine flour, salt, white and brown sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Cut in margarine or shortening. Add the egg and vanilla, and mix well. You may have to knead the dough to blend it thoroughly. It will make a very stiff dough.
Pinch off teaspoons of the dough, roll into balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Flatten them slightly with a fork, then sprinkle them with the cinnamon sugar mix.
Bake at 375 degrees F. for 8 to 10 minutes.
Makes 2 - 3 dozen cookies, depending on the size of the cookies....and how much cookie dough you eat while baking. (Oh, come on, you know you do!)
