DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Sift together all dry ingredients into a bowl and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whip together the shortening and lard until nice and light.
  • Add the dry mixture slowly, one cup at a time (6 cups only first).
  • Place the mixture on the countertop or on a table.
  • Add the remaining dry mixture with the water and continue to knead the dough by hand until you form a good nice dough ball.
  • Sprinkle some flour on the countertop or on the table and spread out the dough with a rolling pin to a thickness of 1/2 inches and use a cookie cutter to make cookies.
  • Place on a cookie sheet.
  • Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes.
  • While cookies are being baked, mix together the topping ingredients in a bowl.
  • Once the cookies come out of the oven, place one by one in the sugar and cinnamon mixture one at a time and sprinkle them with this mixture.
  • Place on a cooling rack to finish cooling.
