I love these cookies! They are slightly crisp on the outside and so soft and tender on the inside. These are my dad's favorite cookies- I made them for him often. This recipe uses both shortening and butter.

This is probably the best snickerddodle recipe that I have tried. Exactly the way that I like them, crunchy on the outside and soft in the midle.
