   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
   cookies.
