"These cookies are a multi-generational tradition. Great with a glass of milk! Butter flavored shortening gives them a wonderful new flavor. This recipe is a double batch- enough to go around!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

butter flavored shortening
1 1/3 cups
Great basic recipe! I added a tablespoon of cinnamon sugar, and these tasted just like scottish shortbread! Great taste, slightly sweet/salty flavor!
Thanks for a great recipe Sandi!
Have to add that all 30 I made (halved the recipe) are gone!
it seemed like something was missing. They tasted like sweet bisquits. Maybe I did something wrong?
This recipe is wonderful....I just loved the texture and taste of these cookies they are wonderful with tea/coffee. (And Yes of course cold milk too!) This recipe was a great one because it was one of the only sugar cookie recipes that I could find with out cream of tartar. Thanks for the great recipe.
I was pretty worried when I saw the lumps in the oven that were just cooking in their own butter and didn't seem to be getting any more cooked! But when I took them out and let them sit for a couple of minutes, they turned a wonderful golden color. They've also got a very simple taste - a nice, light buttery one. Still, very nice!
By the way - you don't need to worry about spacing on the cookie sheet, these don't really expand.
Simple, fast.. as others say, a shortbread taste almost. (I added that hint of ginger myself, thanks) Wonderful warm fresh sugar cookie to go with milk, perfect for a feel good treat!
Thank you for this recipe. My mom made these for me when I was a little girl. She wasn't much of a cook or baker but she did a good job on these. She is now 94 and is not feeling well. I asked her if she remembered the cookies and she said yes. So I figured I would check with all recipes and see if anyone had the recipe. I want to thank you again. I will make them for her and this will bring back lots of memories
This is a very easy, quick recipe! It's a good tasting cookie that isn't crumby. I made a batch for my daughter's class and put red, white and blue sprinkles on top to celebrate Flag Day.
Keep in mind this is a simlpe cookie- not many ingredients, nothing fancy. It tastes almost like a shortbread, and works well when there isn't much in the cupboard to make cookies with. They taste great with a cold glass of milk- Sandi
