Cinnamon Cookies

Submitted by: Glenda on December 3, 2011

This makes a crisp cookie very much like a gingersnap but not so gingery.

I have been making these for 40 or so years. I originally got the recipe from my sis.

Servings: 36 cookies   Prep Time: 15   Cook Time: 12 to 15 minutes  


3/4 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup honey
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon ginger
2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt


Cream together the shortening and the sugar. Add honey and egg and mix well.

Mix dry ingredients together in bowl and then add to shortening mixture. Mix well.

Form into l inch balls and roll in a cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet; they will spread and crack open like gingersnaps.

Bake 375° for 12-15 minutes
