In the book it says: "These remind me of baked pie dough sparkling with cinnamon & sugar. " When we make these, they do remind you very much of baked pie crust. They are true favorites.
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar, divided
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon almond extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Combine shortening, butter, 5 tablespoons of the sugar,
flour, salt, and extracts together; mix well.
Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface to 1/2-inch thickness.
Slice into long 1/2" strips. Cut strips into 2" lengths.
Arrange on ungreased baking sheets; bake at 375° until golden,
about 12-18 minutes. Toss remaining sugar and cinnamon together,
divided evenly into two cake pans. Divide hot sticks fresh from
the oven into the two cake pans and gently flip them around
with a pancake turner to coat them with sugar.
