    My mom made these when I was a kid and we all loved them. They're good plain, or with a simple powdered sugar icing on top. They are really great with a cold glass of milk!!

      I have the Betty Crocker's cooky book from 1963 and was looking at this recipe. I was undecided if I should make it. Searched for it here and saw the good reviews and decided to give it a whirl. I am so glad I did! These are great cookies! I used the butter flavored Crisco sticks. Subbed about 3 TBS of butter and I only had 1/2 c of white sugar so I added 1/2 c of brown. Not sure how different this made the flavor, but they were great!<br/>I frosted them with a mocha buttercream frosting and chopped pecans. Thanks for posting!

      These were great cookies. I raised the amount of cookies to 36 and got 42 when done. Used a Pampered Chef 18/8 scoop. Didn't need any adjustments since I cook at a high altitude. Baking time was 11 minutes. This recipe is a keeper.

      These are even better the day after you bake them. They really are like a brownie! I topped each one with a peppermint Hershey's Hug to make it festive. These were a resounding hit and I'll be making them again. I needed to bake them for 11 minutes.
