Thanks for making cookin_nurse Chef of the Day. We celebrated Memorial Day eating these wonderful cookies. I like cookies that use a mix of butter/shortening--to me they make a better tasting and textured cookie. Other than mixing all dry ingredients together, then adding to creamed mixture, followed recipe to a T. They were perfect at ten minutes. I will add this one to the cookie rotation!
Very good cookie. I made half of the recipe and cut back on the amount of baking powder only using about 2 tsp for half the recipe. The flavor and texture were perfect. Thanks for sharing. I'll make these again. Made for PRMR :)
