|EVERY FEW MINUTES|
2 c. all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
6 tbsp. butter
1/3 c. shortening
3/4 c. sugar
1 tbsp. milk
1 tsp. finely shredded orange peel
1 tsp. vanilla
32 maraschino cherries, halved and well drained
Combine flour and baking powder. In large bowl beat butter and shortening until softened. Add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk, orange peel and vanilla; beat well. Add flour mixture and beat until well mixed. Cover and chill 30 minutes or until easy to handle. Shape into two 8 inch rolls. Wrap and chill overnight.
Chill into 1/4 inch slices. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Let stand 8 minutes to keep dough from cracking. Place a cherry on bottom half for bell clapper. Fold in sides of slice, overlapping at top and slightly covering cherry. Pinch in sides to resemble bell shape. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes.
