I have an old magasine withh the recipe in it. The only big differance is it calls for 2 cups flour not 3. My favorite cookie!
This recipe was very dry when cooked as directed. However, I add an extra egg and one cup milk and they turned out much better and very chewy. Great recipe with the added ingredients.
I have a recipe for these, but mine just calls for 2 cups of flour, so that is why the 4 stars and not 5. We also like to interchange with different things like m&m's, raisins, chopped nuts, craisins, etc... Usually add 3/4 a cup of the added ingredients. Do NOT try using a mixer to blend the flour mixture to the shortening/sugar/egg mixture!!! You will burn up a mixer in no time flat! It is a very thick dough, but if made with 2 cups flour, they are very good!
very good - make sure to use one cup less flour, or to add milk and egg like another reviewer recommended. Both "solution" take care of the dryness
I thought that this recipe had wAAAAY too much dry ingredients for the amount of wet ingredients called for, but instead of following my instincts, I followed the recipe to the letter. What a mess! I added 1/2 cup more shortening, 1 more egg and a bit of milk. I also used butter flavor shortening because I like the buttery taste. If not for the error in the ingredients, I would rate these cookies as 4 stars. Now I will always check reviews before I try a new recipe. Lesson learned.
I cut back on the flour and added double the salt and vanilla plus added a heaping teaspoon of cinnamon. There are really wonderful cookies and bring back a great memory. Thank you Karen
I was looking for a ranger cookie recipe to enter i LA Country Fair, well I used this one, and I took 3rd place. IT was my first time usig this recipe, I did however add extra 1/2 cup of real butter and they turned out wonderful
This recipe would be 4 stars if you remove 1 cup of flour. My mother has had the exact recipe since the med 1950's. but hers calls for 2 cups of flour not 3; and that makes a fairly stiff dough.
