1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon orange extract
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
2 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat the oven to 375. Beat shortening, brown sugar, white sugar,
orange extract, and orange rind until fluffy. Beat in the two eggs.
In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients: flour, cinnamon, salt,
cream of tartar and baking soda. Add dry ingredients to the wet sugar
mixture and mix well.
Grease a cookie sheet and drop rounded teaspoons of cookie dough onto
the sheet. Combine the remaining tablespoon of sugar and teaspoon of
cinnamon and sprinkle over the cookies. Bake for eight to ten minutes.
