I forgot that I had this recipe until someone asked about it. Shaped and tastes like the Suzy-Q snack cakes (made by Hostess)!

This is a good recipie - tastes great - yet not too sweet.<br/>I beat the crisco and sugars together for a LONG time in the Kitchenaid, then when I combined the sugar/crisco mixture with the flour/milk mixture I again let it mix for a Long time (probably 10 min) in the Kitchenaid. I think that helped a lot.
