I'm not leaving any stars for this recipe, simply because I screwed up making them. I never have Crisco in the house, so I tried making these with softened butter. While they were easy to make and tasted great, the texture difference caused by using the butter was quite noticeable. They looked good when coming out of the oven, but deflated as they cooled... eventually becoming thin as wafers and super-delicate. I'll have to make these again when I actually have the Crisco on hand.
