1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening (recommended: Crisco)

1 1/2 cups sugar, plus 2 tablespoons for dusting

2 eggs

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

24 chocolate sticks (recommended: Mikado)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Combine the butter, shortening, sugar and eggs in the bowl of a mixer. Blend in flour. Form dough into 1-inch balls. Combine 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Roll the balls in the sugar-cinnamon mixture and bake 8 to 10 minutes. Then place the chocolate sticks inside the cookies so they look like lollipops.
