These cookies are like taking a bite of cake. They are wonderfully light and fluffy. I substituted butter flavored shortening for the regular shortening.

I tried this recipe and used skim milk. It wasn't specified to use whole milk. It was a bit thin and took longer to bake but all in all it is a good recipe.

These are really good. To add to the value, I added 1 Tbs. of flax seed. Thanks for the great recipe. I will make these again.

Very good. I enjoyed them very much. I did, however, use 1/3 C sugar less. They turned out rather nice. :)
