    Kelly Vaughn's Note:

    We can't keep these in stock at my house! These cookies ship well and don't stick together in the cookie jar, yet are always soft and moist. I took the liberty of doubling the original recipe becasue that way I can use an entire box of brown sugar and not have to measure it. Special note: I make mine with Smart Balance shortening, and it changes the baking characteristics slightly. They spread less and cook faster. If you use Smart Balance shortening, take them out after 9 minutes. They might look a little raw, but they'll actually be done. I've also found that cookies baked on thin cookies sheets don't spread as much, and you can pack more of them on a sheet without trouble.

      These are the softest cookies...and I usually hate cookies made with shortening. The flavor could use a little tweaking to be my family's taste, but a great cookie.

      My mom's favorite cookies! She uses the butter flavored crisco shortening to make these...but otherwise, this is her exact recipe she follows too!

      I also used butter flavored Crisco shortening. And added a bag of white chocolate chips. They were very good tasting and didn't last long at my house. Use a big sturdy bowl for mixing the wet and the dry ingredients. It keeps you from mixing some over the side.
