Old-Time Cinnamon Jumbles © 1957

Made with buttermilk...delicately soft and cake-like. "So easy...that making them is a thrill for the girls in the Home Economics classes each year," according to Miss Sarah M. Knight of Buffalo, New York. And even her little sixth-graders report making them with great success in their own homes!

Mix thoroughly...
1/2 cup soft shortening (part butter)
1 cup sugar
1 egg

Stir in...
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
Sift together and stir in...
2 cups sifted Gold Medal Flour
1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Chill dough. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls about 2" apart on lightly greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with mixture of sugar and cinnamon (1/4 cup sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon). Bake until set but not brown.

TEMPERATURE: 400º (mod. hot oven).
TIME: Bake 8 to 10 min.
AMOUNT: About 4 doz. 2" cookies.
