Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup margarine or butter (1 1/2 sticks) -- softened
3/4 cup shortening
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
2 eggs
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 egg white
2 tablespoons sugar
Red candied cherries
Green candied citron

Heat oven to 400º.

Mix 1 cup sugar, the margarine, shortening, orange peel and eggs in large bowl. Mix in flour. Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into ropes, 6 inches long. Form each rope into a circle, crossing ends and tucking under. (This shaping method is easier than the traditional method of tying knots.) Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Beat egg white and 2 tablespoons sugar until foamy; brush over tops of cookies. Press bits of red candied cherries on center of knot for holly berries. Add "leaves" cut from green candied citron.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set but not brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
