    Lady D.'s Note:

    As the title says, these cookies are my dad's absolute favorite. We only make them once or twice a year because they're so special. Delicious, yet surprisingly easy. *Note* The amount of flour you use will vary depending on the temp, humidity level, elevation, etc.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350.
    2. 2
      Mix shortening, butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla thoroughly.
    3. 3
      Stir in soda and salt.
    4. 4
      One cup at a time, stir in flour until a dough has formed that isn't sticky and can be molded.
    5. 5
      (You may have to use less or more than the specified amt.) Halve dough and turn out on lightly floured board/wax paper.
    6. 6
      Shape each half into cylindrical rolls, about 1 1/2 in.
    7. 7
    8. 8
      Slice and bake on ungreased cookie sheets until slightly firm, but*not too brown*.
    9. 9
      (If they are too brown, they will get very hard when cool.) Keep an eye on them- generally, the bottom will have just started to turn brown when they are done.
    10. 10
      Don't worry if the top feels too soft because it will set when you take them out.
    11. 11
      **Fora twist, use 1-2 c of oatmeal in place of some of the flour.
    12. 12
      They're slightly chewier and bake a bit faster.
