The best cookies ever! I do not like doughy cookies- AT ALL! These were slightly more cake-like, but not doughy. So, so, so good! I have to say, so many people have said, "use half butter half shortening" no way! Use all butter- but don't melt it all the way. Just until it is soft, and make sure to get salted butter! Then make the dough. And I personally love flat cookies, so I baked these right away. But if you wanted a thicker cookie you could put them in the freezer or fridge for a few minutes or hours. Also, these can freeze in a plastic container for about 2 weeks, so they are great cookies to make ahead of time! Oh, and the dough or the actual cookies can freeze. One more thing, shortening is not good for you one bit, and I am not saying that butter is, I am just saying- Butter Is Better! Anyhow, thanks for posting this Mary, your awesome! p.s. I liked them better with plain vanilla, not almond extract. And I used honey and xylitol in place of the sugar and brown sugar! Good Luck with these scrumptious cookies!
