      I think there is a step missing, wasn't sure where the vanilla was supposed to go, I added it to the egg mixture. I halved the recipe because I only had a stick of hard butter (1/2 cup) and Crisco...I'm not sure if the butter was the cause, but the flour mixture came out very sticky so I had to keep adding more flour (almost 2 c) to it so I could roll it out, I wasn't sure how thick to roll it either, so I rolled to about 3/16", poured the brn sugar/cin mixture and rolled it like a cinnamon roll and cut 1/2 inch slices...the dough was very soft so it was collapsing on me and the sugar mixture was falling out. It didn't look so good, but we liked the taste, once baked the pieces stuck together but they were deformed lol I give this a 3.5 but rounding up in case it was caused by the substitution. I will try again w/Crisco. Oh, maybe I'm just slow, but it took about 30 min to prepare.

      These were great! My family and friends loved these. I had a similar problem with sticky dough, but didn't add more flour - just sprinkled a little more on top as I rolled them up. Next time, I might chill the dough for an hour instead of just chilling the Crisco. I frosted these with a little powdered sugar frosting/glaze. Kay Williams really knew her cookies! Thanks for posting this recipe!

      I had a slight problem with my dough. I seperated my dough and cinnamon mixtures into two sets for easier rolling but found that my they were falling apart when I was cutting them. Next time I think I'll chill again before I cut the rolls and I'm sure they'll turn out beautifully. Also I only cooked mine for 8 minutes but when all was said and done (save for where they broke from previously unruly dough) they were moist and delicious and will be a nice addition to my Christmas trays. Thanks for a recipe that wasn't just one more every day cookie.
