exercise is my medicine. I run, swim, and lift weights anything to keep my body in top form. I am an RN, a mother, a wife, a sister, a daughter and a friend.

My 18 year old is off at Humboldt State and requested cookies from home for her 18th birthday. So this morning I made a batch and here is the recipe I have developed.
1/2 c shortening
1/2 c butter
1 1/2 c sugar
2 eggs
1 2/3c flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

roll walnut sized balls of dough in cinnamon sugar then bake in a 375 degree oven for no more 9 minutes.

OK yikes this old fashioned recipe could probably use a healthy make over but I will just not eat any and hope my daughter shares these with many people I mean who uses shortening and butter besides Paula Dean?
