We love to make these cookies as soon as the days get colder and the leaves start changing colors. (Happens pretty early here :-) They are moist, fluffy, and cake-like. We love em' as is but feel free to add chocolate chips or chopped nuts.
- Cream shortening and sugar.
- Add rest of ingredients and mix well.
- Drop by spoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350* for 8-10 minutes or until rim is lightly browned.
These cookies are very moist and flavorful. Everyone loved them and several people asked for the recipe. Because they are very cake-like, I would recommend testing them for doneness with a toothpick. The first batch out of the oven turned kind of gummy as they cooled. I ended up baking them for about 11 minutes from then on. They were so much like a cake that I decided to add some Cream Cheese Frosting. It complimented them really well. Thanks for sharing!
