Directions:
Cream sugar, brown sugar and shortening. Add eggs and vanilla, mix. Mix flour, cinnamon and baking soda together, slowly add to sugar and egg mixture. Add nuts. Place dough on floured pastry board. Knead and roll into a loaf. Adding enough flour to make dough stiff. Wrap loaf in film wrap and let stand overnight in refrigerator or freezer. I wrap with foil after film and freeze for later use. Slice thin and bake in 375 degree oven for about 9 minutes (firm but not overly done if you like soft dunking cookies). NOTE: It's easier to slice dough if it is still frozen.
