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.

These were delicious! I used butter flavored Crisco shortening and doubled the cinnamon. They didn't stick together or fall apart!

These were pretty good. I don't buy my brown sugar in 1 lb boxes, so used half of a 1 kg bag, which was about 3 cups. These cookies do fall apart easily.
