These cookies have been in my family for years. I suppose that is the reason that they're made with...shortening. Yes, I'm using the white greasy stuff in these cookies, and you know what, they are amazing! So go on, cheat a little on your diet and make these. You'll love them!

Cream the sugar and shortening together with a hand-held mixer. Add the eggs and vanill and mix well. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Slowly add the dry to the wet mixture and mix well. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
Living in small town Oklahoma, I am married to the sweetest man you will ever meet. We have five young children, so I would now consider myself a professional juggler. I'm a wannabe crafter, cook, baker, and gardener. Some might call me crunchy. I'm okay with it.
