  6. Shortening is vegetable fat used for making cakes, pies pastries etc. Some people used lard. I use Crisco brand. Honey, when you get here I will make you a whole cake! Come on lottery numbers!

  7. Got to make these...I have been cooking soup as of late so some cookies would be a sweet change. Thanks for sharing, Tootsie
