    Cookies rose just fine but we're very bland, crumbly and cake-like instead of moist and chewy. They looked perfect from the outside but just didn't taste as good as my regular recipe, which contains vanilla and a mixture of butter and shortening.

    I used the butter that it called dor in the receipe. The butter was very cold, ut these cookies did not raise the way they should have. This always seems to happen when I only use butter, instead of equal amounts of butter and shortening . I won't use this recipe again


I'm a Navy wife, that LOVES to cook. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we are still so much in love. I grew up in Peoria, IL and now live in Norfolk, VA. I have a beautiful daughter now named Alianna. She is about to be two and a bowl of energy. She loves food and we can't keep her out of the bread box. My husband, Josh, is in the US Navy. He loves food of all kind. I love music, novels and art in general. I have been cooking since a young age. I like to keep our family eating healthy foods, but mostly we eat our favorites. We are constantly trying new things. I try to pick out a new recipe to try every two weeks. I am passionate about body image and believe that any and every woman is or can be beautiful. I am a beautician of sorts. Though I do not have a license, nobody has seemed to mind yet. I dislike people that believe you have to be thin to be pretty or people that are consistently negative. I am studying to be a Registered Nurse - Midwife. I had to put my studies on the back burner because of health problems. I'm hoping to clear up my health and go back to school and work soon.
