    IamEarnie's Note:

    These cookies are better than Grandma's! It's important to use both shortening and butter in this recipe. The butter makes them soft on the inside, and the shortening makes them crisper on the outside. To frost them, I use equal parts of butter and cream cheese, 1 tablespoon of vanilla, and enough powdered sugar to pull it together.

      I've been looking for this recipe for years. Was one of the recipes given to me when I graduated from high school. I have long lost those recipe cards through many relocations. Thank you!!

      We really liked these cookies. I thought they were a little bland unfrosted, but with the frosting made as you suggested they were delicious. I love the cakey texture with just a bit of crispness. Thank You for sharing. Nick's Mom
