    PaulaG's Note:

    This is from a Treasury of Holiday Cookies, a supermarket booklet that I picked up a couple of years ago. I have wanted to make these cookies and keep misplacing the booklet. If I post it, maybe I will make them.

      Very tasty spice cookies. However, next time I'll replace half the shortening with butter for a bit more flavor. I also didn't bother rolling the dough into balls first; just dropped by spoonfuls onto baking sheet, then pressed flat with sugar-dipped glass. My teenagers love these cookies also.

      I did the recipe for 30 cookies and got 29 cookies LOL I used Tenderflake with butter flavor. I cooked the cookies 10 minutes and left them 2 minutes on the baking sheet then I removed them on the wire rack. Thanks PaulaG :) Made for Newest Zaar tag.
