Mix shortening, butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla thoroughly. Stir in remaining ingredients. Turn dough onto lightly floured board. Shape dough into ball with lightly floured hands, pressing to make dough compact. Cut dough in half. Shape each half into 2 inches x 8 inches roll by gently rolling dough back and forth on floured board. Roll dough onto plastic wrap; wrap and twist ends tightly.
