The basic recipe comes from Betty Crocker, I just added 1 cup cinnamon chips!

1/2 c butter or margarine, softened
1/2 c shortening
1 1/2 c sugar
2 eggs
2 1/4 c flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 c cinnamon chips
2 T sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Heat oven to 400.  Mix thoroughly butter, shortening, 1 1/2 c sugar, and the eggs.  Blend in flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt.  Add cinnamon chips.  Shape dough by rounded tsp into balls.

Mix the 2 T sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon (I always need more of this mixture so make twice aas much) Rolls balls in mixture.

Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake 8-10 minutes or until set.  Remove immediately from baking sheet. 

Thanks everyone!

Thank you to all my wonderful class ladies last night!  We had a great time and look forward to another year of Preserving the Past in 2013!  Thanks for letting me share what I love with you every month! 

FKS has lots of new things planned for the upcoming year, read on for some important news!

Updates from For Keeps Sake . . .

We want to give you a heads up on a couple of things we just found out:
Your favorite markers, COPIC, have been a staple at For Keeps Sake for quite some time. Copic suggested retail is $7.50 each marker.  For Keeps Sake's every day low price has been $5.50 each since we first started carrying the full line of colors.  We just found out that COPIC is raising the price on their markers effective January 1.  Stop by now and fill up on all your favorite colors before the prices go up.  We're going to get one more order in before the end of the year so you can get in on today's prices. The good news: For Keeps Sake will keep its $2 discount on each of these.  So even though the suggested retail price will be $7.99 starting January 1, For Keeps Sake will keep their prices below retail at $5.99 and our refill service will continue as usual!
Ranger is also raising their prices on some of their items. We're getting one more order in before this so stop in and pick up your favorite colors of Ranger Distress Ink Pads and reinkers before the prices go up.  Ranger is raising each of these by $1 effective February 1.  Stock up @ For Keeps Sake before the increase.
Now onto some great news:
We listen to your suggestions and make adjustments where we can and one of those adjustments involves our popular gift certificates.
Effective immediately: Purchase a For Keeps Sake gift certificate and the recipient will receive key tag punches for their regularly purchased product. Now, they can work their way to an additional $20 in free product when their key tags are full just by using their gift certificates. Additional information available at For Keeps Sake.
There's more:
We love and appreciate our class takers and we want to reward you. Effective January 1 . . . attend a class and get a 25% discount on any regularly priced purchase night of class.
