Recipe by: CHRISTMAS COOKBOOK
Mix 1 cup sugar, the margarine, shortening, orange peel and whole eggs.
Stir in flour. Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into ropes, about 6"
long and 1/4" in diameter. Form each rope into circle, crossing ends and
tucking under. (This shaping method is easier than the traditional method
of tying knots.) Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Beat egg white and 2 Tablespoon sugar until foamy; brush over tops of
cookies. For holly berries, press bits of red candied cherries on center of
knot; add little jagged leaves cut from citron. Bake until set but not
brown, 10-12 min. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. About 6 dozen
