I was shocked to not find Shortnin' Bread here. So, here it is, antebellum style, and it sounds delicious. There is no shortening in here, since shortening once referred to any type of cooking fat. The original shortnin' bread, according to some, was a savory cornbread layered with bacon. It is now categorized as a sweet dessert, and encompasses all from Scottish Shortbread to regular sugar cookies. This, however, is one of the original recipes from pre-war Tennessee. I'm sure all "mama's little babies" will love this. Thanks to Margaret Nichol.
