Cinnamon Meltaways

preheat your oven to 325*

This is a great recipe for an any time of year cookie! I just happened to bake them at Christmas time. This cookie is delicate if you use certain cutters like a snowflake, but stars and trees or any other shape that has more of a body are great. It has the flavor of cinnamon and vanilla, but you can use any flavor you like. A rum or hazelnut flavor would also be good. It makes a very delicate cookie that is perfect with a nice cup of coffee or tea! Happy baking!

  • 2 cups of Crisco, (I use sticks, I love the sticks)
  • 2 sticks soft butter
  • 1/4 cup water with 1 tablespoon vanilla added
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 5 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

cream butter and Crisco, add sugars, cream together. Now add flour, water and baking soda till mixed in. Roll out to 1/4 inch thick on floured surface. Cut into desired shapes, place on parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake at 325 for 12 to 15 minutes.

While they are baking mix a tablespoon of cinnamon into 2 cups of sugar. Let the the cookies cool on the pan for a while then dip in a cinnamon sugar mixture while still warm……this is when you need to be careful as they can break, and you will be forced to eat all the broken ones yourself….. LOL

Let them cool, then enjoy!
