Cinnamon Jumbles

This recipe (one of my husband’s favorites) is from my mother-in-law, via a very old cookbook. Not sure if it’s Betty Crocker, but she sent me photocopies of a few pages, and it could possibly be. I am including the recipe as written in her cookbook, including the notes at the beginning, just for the nostalgia value…

Old-Time Cinnamon Jumbles

Made with buttermilk…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 together 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: 400° (mod. hot oven)

Time: Bake 8 to 10 min.

Amount: About 4 doz. 2″ cookies.
