Here is another family cookie recipe. Yes I am in a cookie making mood.

1 cup Shortening
1 1/2 C Sugar
2 Eggs

2 3/4 C. Sifted Flour
2 teaspoons cream tartar
1 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

*You can make them snickerdoodles by mixing 2 teaspoons of sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon in a bowl and then rolling the dough in balls and then rolling them in the cinnamon sugar mixture.

*You can add chocolate chips/ or m&ms to the dough and mixing them in before dropping the cookies on the cookie sheet with a spoon or a cookie scoop.

*Another option is to put scoops of cookie dough on the cookie sheet and then 1 minute before they are done- pull the cookies out of the oven and place 1 unwrapped hersheys kiss on top of each cookie and then bake for the last minute.

Bake 8-10 minute at 400 degrees ( I usually stay closer to the 8 minutes- they are not completely done when you pull them out but they continue to cook a little on the cookie sheet as it cools.

Enjoy! They are addictive!
