Once the wall is dry, you need to mark it out with a pencil depending on what size you want your bricks to be. Once the entire wall is marked, you then can string your tape. I used 3/8".

This is my favorite cookie of all time! But why do I only make them at Christmas? I need to remember to make them throughout the year. They are super good. Zach helped me make them, he rolled them in the cinnamon sugar!
1 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 3/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
In a large bowl, mix together the shortening and 1 1/2 cups of white sugar until smooth. Stir in the eggs one at a time, blending well after each. Combine the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt; stir into the batter until blended.
Roll the dough into balls the size of small walnuts. Roll in a mixture of 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned, but still soft.
