  1. Place marshmallows in freezer while you mix the dough.
  2. Cream crisco, butter or margarine, and sugar.
  3. Blend in the eggs and the vanilla.
  4. Add dry ingredients, mix until moistened.
  5. Mix until mixture holds together. Dough will be sticky. Flatten walnut size pieces in palm of hand. Remove the marshmallows from freezer, and place one in center.
  6. Shape dough around the marshmallow into a walnut shape, roll in white sugar.
  7. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 6 minutes or until tops start to crackle. Cool on baking rack and store in an airtight container.
