Introduction

These are good. Really, really good. And also, really, really big. You could easily make them half the size and get a few dozen cookies out of the recipe. These are good. Really, really good.

Ingredients

    2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon fine salt
    1/2 cup shortening
    8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
    1 1/2 cups sugar, plus 3 tablespoons
    2 large eggs
    1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt into a bowl.

With a handheld or standing mixer, beat together the shortening and butter. Add the 1 1/2 cups sugar and continue beating until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the flour mixture and blend until smooth.

Mix the 3 tablespoons sugar with the cinnamon in a small bowl. Roll the dough, by hand, into 1 1/2-inch balls. Roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar. Flatten the balls into 1/2-inch thick disks, spacing them evenly on unlined cookie sheets. Bake until light brown, but still moist in the center, about 12 minutes. Cool on a rack.

Yields 20 cookies.
