DIRECTIONS

  • Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  • Cream shortening, butter or margarine and sugar until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix thoroughly, I use my electric mixture usually on high power to really whip it up good.
  • Stir flour mixture into creamed mixture.
  • Mix well.
  • Add fruit and nuts.
  • Chill for at least 1/2 hour for easier handling.
  • Shape dough into smooth rolls about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
  • Wrap in waxed paper or clear wrap and chill overnight or until firm.
  • Slice with sharp knife in 1/4 inch slices.
  • Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake at 375°F for 8-10 minutes or until golden.
