Recipe by Justin 207

This recipe is the best. I made it when I was in the 5th grade for a Math project and they were so good.

Just a word of caution. Don't make the cookies with butter. I tried that and it just didn't set. Shortening is the way to go. I made these twice. The first time I used only the ingredients listed. The second time I tried butter instead of shortening and added an egg (after reading a review and not remembering if I did so before). The first way is the best - with shortening and using only the ingredients listed. I am going to make these again and hopefully they turn out just like the first time!
