This was my grandmother's recipe and I loved making these with my mom when I was younger. I also used to eat the dough after chilled - probably not a good idea now that we know about the possible ill-effects of raw cookie dough, but it sure is good! I actually remember liking the dough better than the baked cookies.
Ice Box Cookies
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar (granulated - not powdered)
1 stick butter
1/2 cup shortening
1 tsp. baking soda in a little hot water
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup nuts (or less) (we used either pecans or walnuts in part of the batch) --- OPTIONAL
4 level cups flour
Mix in order given.
Roll in a solid long round piece (we made ours kind of rectangular about 1 inch deep by about 2 inches wide).
Wrap in waxed paper and chill in refrigerator until very cold.
Slice thin (about 1/4 inch slices).
Bake in 425 oven for about 10 minutes.
