    These were good. Since I like to make my cookies larger than the usual sized, this made 32 cookies for me. I did not grease my baking dish as the mixture already had enough margarine in it. I'm not too sure whether cake flour means the same as all-purpose flour ,or if the latter can be substituted for the former. But, I made this using all purpose flour and it was good. Thanks!

    Taste good, but they didn't spread well. I think they might come out better with butter (in place of shortening). I used All-Purpose flour..maybe cake flour would make a difference too.

    Loved these! I use all purpose flour and only a dash of salt as my DH is on a low sodium diet. He loved them too. The go great with recipe #103024 Vanilla Pudding. Will surely be making these often .
    This has a yummy vanilla flavoring to it. The cookie is very thin & flat so be sure to drop the cookies 2 in apart so they don't run into each other. I baked mine for 18 minutes since I like my cookies a litte soft on the inside yet crisp on the outside. This made around 4 dozen for me.


Hey there!~ My name is Crystal. I am 19,and living in Florida. I really love to cook,& bake all the time for my family.I just get so much enjoyment out of it! There is just something about the great aroma throughout the house when you bake something,creating special memories in the kitchen! A little more about me: I am a strict vegetarian,(almost vegan!,heh)but of course my whole family is not,so I cook just about anything! Other than cooking-I like to read,surf the net and create art. My favorite websites are: www.ebay.com & www.witchvox.com (I'm wiccan) Of course,the Zaar has become my favorite website! I love how friendly the people are and how interactive this place is!
