I have made this recipe several times and it is a huge hit with both children and adults. I have been asked to bring it to an annual cookie exchange for the past three years. The cookies are crispy and hold up for several days. Being a butter-cook and not one who typically uses shortening, I was skeptical at first; however, I think the cookies are worth a try.
