I love this recipe from Butter Flavored Crisco, but I stopped making them YEARS ago after learning how horrible the partially hydrogenated oils in shortening are for you (raises the bad levels of cholesterol while lowering the good cholesterol). Today I substituted 1 cup of organic, unrefined, coconut oil and 1/2 cup of butter for the 1 1/2 cups of butter flavored shortening, and voila! It tastes just as good as the original recipe AND I'm getting my essential medium chain fatty acids! My family loved it because the cookies remained soft, unlike when I only use butter in chocolate chip cookies.
