Refrigerate the shortening! Seriously, these are absolutely delicious cookies, but the second time I made them I used unopened shortening from the pantry and they flattened like pancakes. I felt like a ridiculous newbie for making the mistake. Still tasted good, though. I did read the other reviews and upped the spice factor. I used 1 Tbs cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp cloves and a pinch of ginger. Also, instead of going through the icing trouble, I made a plain glaze with powdered sugar and milk and dipped the tops in, then made a spiced glaze with powdered sugar, the aforementioned spices, and milk, and drizzled it on top. Taste was phenomenal and it was a pretty presentation as well. Thanks for this recipe, it's an instant favorite.
