I found this in my Food Network magazine. It is a Crisco recipe and it was easy and turned out really yummy. You can dip them in chocolate or just eat them plain. If you dip, some ideas were to sprinkle crushed candy canes, chopped nuts, sprinkles or whatever you think is fun!
Brown Sugar Cookies
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat together shortening, butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla in medium bowl until light and fluffy. I mixed the butter and shortening first and then added the remaining ingredients. Next time I might used butter and margarine instead!
Mix in flour, baking soda and salt. Shape dough into 1-inch balls or use a small cookie scoop. Place 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet.
Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to cooling rack and when cooled dip or spread melted chocolate on half and sprinkle on anything you might like!
