butter flavored shortening
cream of tartar
This recipe is amazing! I didn't press the cookies flat with a glass dipped in sugar (I was out of granulated and needed some cookies QUICK) so I just pressed them lightly with my fingers. My family doesn't like really crisp cookies so I didn't press them too much. Anyway, they turned out almost like Mexican Wedding Cakes- slightly sweet, sugar cookies that melt in your mouth. YUM!
Dough too sticky, even after refrigerating. Finished product too cake like, fall apart easily. Not a keeper.
i love these cookies! they are moist and flavorful. i couldn't give it five stars however because i had to alter it a bit. it needed more powdered sugar, more salt, more vanilla, and i used a bit of granulated sugar for texture and butter instead of shortening. but with all the changes made they came out perfectly. you have to take them out right before they start to brown though, and i refridgerated the dough for about an hour and a half before rolling them which made it A LOT easier. i'd recommend pressing them down just a bit instead of putting them in the oven as balls because you get a better sense of how much they will spread and they come out a little bigger. will be using the changed recipe to make holiday cookies again and again.
This was delicious. I have an allergic daughter and have lost my original recipe, but this one is very close to it. I subbed for the eggs w/an egg replacer and used Fleishman's unsalted margarine instead of butter flavored shortening. We make cut-out hearts and decorated w/sprinkles for her Valentines Day party.
FINALLY!!! The cookie recipe I've been searching for forever! I've tried so many recipes and this is THE ONE. Made perfect melt in your mouth bakery quality amazing cookies. No burnt bottoms and spread perfectly! I'm so happy!!THANK YOU!!
Wow I just made these and they are wonderful and SOFT. I rolled into balls and flatten then with my hand, add deco sugar and bake. These are a hit ..you can also use other flavoring like almond, lemon etc if you want a different taste. I use homemade vanilla extract ...5 stars for this winner!!!
oh these cookies are heavenly! thanks for the melt-in-your-mouth recipe. they will be amazing too with some homemade buttercream icing...
i followed the recipe exactly!
These roll out and cut well!
