I found these to be excellent cut-out cookies for a summer party- probably the best cutouts I've ever eaten. I frosted them with only vanilla glaze, not wanting to detract from their tasty butte...
I followed the recipied exactlly and they were runny!Just Horrible. I have now started over using a different recipie and they are turing out great.
Delicious cookies! I don't know why one reviewer wrote that the cookies tasted like animal fat... unless they used lard. Crisco is made from vegetables!
