I made these cookies last night with 1 stick of the Crisco vegetable shortening, baked them at 375 for 8 minutes and they turned out AWESOME! They didn't go flat, they were flavorful, texture was nice. Really good.

This is a very good recipe. I did use 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening. I find that all butter allows the cookies to flatten too much. The combination of the two is just the right mix. I added cinnamon to the dough as well as rolling them in cinn/sugar. I baked at 375 for 7 to 9 minutes ... they were perfect.

I make these all of the time with a recipe Ive had for 40 years shortening can be half margarine, half crisco, or low fat margarine, only, etc, if you use oil only they won't come out as well, flat. but you can reduct the fat content greatly. A healthy alternative that works well for me

I made the variation with the cinnamon in the cookie. They were so light and crunchy and the cinnamon flavor was just right. Couldn't keep them around!!!

I made these and they looked look but did not have the wow that ones made with real butter have so I'd say these are average, but will make the recipe using butter from now on. They were perfect looking though.

I had to turn the oven down to 375 degrees and increased the cooking time to 10 minutes.

The first batch I made came out black on the bottoms, so for the second batch I turned the temperature down to 350 and baked for 10 minutes. After that, they turned out really good. I also used 1 stick of butter instead of the shortening sticks.

I bake cookies for my son's co workers. One of them asked for snickerdoodles. I made this recipe this morning and OMG, they are picture perfect! Taste good too.
