"I have made Sugar Cookies for more years than I want to count and never changed the recipe. Then one time a lady in our church brought these for the kids Christmas program. My husband tasted them and asked me to get the recipe. I rebelled at changing, but to please him, I tried them. Now, these are all that I ever make. They are wonderful. Yes, I do use Crisco (shame on me because of the type of fat). The lady said she had tried, and I did too, butter, and also half butter and half Crisco, but they didn't come out the same, but with the Crisco, they are one yummy Sugar Cookie."
