1 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda

Cream shortening and sugars until fluffy; add eggs and beat well.

In a separate bowl, sift together dry ingredients, except kasha, and add to creamed mixture. Stir in kasha.

Form into 2-inch diameter rolls; wrap in waxed paper or plastic wrap. When firm, preheat oven to 350F, slice and bake for 10-15 minutes or until slightly browned.

Makes about 6 dozen.

*Coarse or whole kasha makes cookies with nut-like texture and flavour. Fine or medium kasha makes cookies with flavour and texture of oatmeal cookies.
