You may remember, dear Reader, that at Christmas past I was trying recipes for a cookie exchange and posted the story here.
Some of you asked for the recipe, and when I asked permission from Crisco, where I had gotten the recipe, they said, no. Well, today, when I wanted to make these cookies again, I could not find my recipe so checked online to see if Crisco might have put it there, and sure enough, I found this: Brown Sugar Cookies.
I will tell you, though, that I change this around a bit. I use a whole block of Crisco butter-flavored shortening. I like buying the blocks as they are pre-measured and easier to handle. Also, use a bit less flour if you live in a really dry climate like ours. (14 percent humidity here yesterday)
These cookies are so easy to make and they store really well in the freezer. I think if you make large ones, you could put a scoop of ice cream between two for a really good ice cream sandwich.
