3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons grated orange peal
2 eggs
4 cups flour
1 egg white
2 tablespoons sugar
red candies cherries

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix thoroughly butter, shortening, 1 cup sugar, the orange peal, and 2 eggs. Blend in flour. Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into ropes, each 6-inches long. Form each rope into circle, bringing one end over and through in a single knot. Let inch extend at each end. Place on ungreased baking sheet.

Press bits of candied cherries on center of knot for holly berries, and candied citron for leaves. Bake 10-12 minutes or until set but not brown. Immediately remove from baking sheet.
