Hey, I have this same recipe! I love these cookies. I use butter, and make sure it's really whipped up with the sugar good before adding the flour and soda. They're a great addition to the Christmas cookie platter.

Yummy, will definately add vanilla extract next time as the dough was good but a bit bland. I used butter and it had a wonderful buttery taste. I also refrigerated the dough for 30 mins before putting on the cookie sheet and then I hand rolled them because I wanted chewy puffed cookies. They are very sturdy once cooled and so I think I'm going to use this for christmas shipped goodies. I also am planning on trying it with less butter and a bit of milk and see what texture I get with that as I want it a bit softer after it's cooled.
