These were good. Since I like to make my cookies larger than the usual sized, this made 32 cookies for me. I did not grease my baking dish as the mixture already had enough margarine in it. I'm not too sure whether cake flour means the same as all-purpose flour ,or if the latter can be substituted for the former. But, I made this using all purpose flour and it was good. Thanks!

Taste good, but they didn't spread well. I think they might come out better with butter (in place of shortening). I used All-Purpose flour..maybe cake flour would make a difference too.

Loved these! I use all purpose flour and only a dash of salt as my DH is on a low sodium diet. He loved them too. The go great with recipe #103024 Vanilla Pudding. Will surely be making these often .
