- 3lbs of vegetable shortening
- 5 pounds flour
- 2 cups of sugar
- 6 tablespoons ground cinnamon sticks
- 6 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 1 cup of water
- 1 whole cinnamon stick
- Cinnamon/sugar topping:
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 tsp ground cinnamon
Bring water with 1 cinnamon stick to a boil. Set aside to cool. Put shortening, flour, sugar, and cinnamon in a big bowl or pan. Cut with a pastry cutter until it resembles coarse cornmeal.
Pour in water and work into a dough ball. Roll out dough to 1/4” thickness and cut with a cookie cutter. Bake at 400 for 18-20 min. Roll in cinnamon & sugar mixture.
* I do not own a molcajete so I cheat and just use 12 tablespoons of ground cinnamon.
