I make these same cookies with only 1 exception I use 1 Cup of Vegtable Oil instead of the shortening...They are very good and for Christmas I usually use green and red jimmies just to make it look a little festive for the holidays. This recipe makes a very large batch so make sure your hungry :)
I cut the recipe down to twenty four cookies and added one half teaspoon of grated lemon zest. Quick and easy to make and very yummy! Will be freezing until Christmas Eve. Added to this menu: Menu #24541 Thanks! cg
I made these cookies for Christmas. They taste EXACTLY like what I was looking for. They are easy to make, fun to make with kids, look great on a plate and hold up well. I kept them for two weeks in a cookie tin. I am looking forward to making them again.
As a helper of a girl scout troop, one of a projects to earn a badge was to prepare an ethnic meal. We chose and Italian meal and for dessert we chose these cookies. The girls really enjoyed making and EATING them. We got about 5 1/2 dozen cookies from a batch. Thanks for a really wonderful and delicious recipe.
