My husband loves snickerdooles, so I try to make them every year. This is the first time I have ever used a combination of shortening and butter. Although these cookies are easy and taste great, they didn't seem to be as tender or to puff up as much as my old recipe.

Sherry, thanks for posting. These are very similar to ones I have made since the early '70's. Easy and delicious!

My husband loves I have spent many hours locating the best recipe. This one wins hands down. The only problem is I can't keep them in the house for more than a day. Thanks for the is definitely a keeper. I use all butter instead of the shortening and they are still great.
