Recipe Notes

The original recipe calls for 2 1/4 cups of butter flavored shortening. I don’t love shortening so I usually add 1 1/2 cups of butter and 1 cup shortening. If you want a taller cookie, use more shortening. If you are going for flavor and don’t care about them being flat, use more butter.
Don’t forget! You can use whatever mix-ins make you happy! M&M’s, nuts, craisins, toffee bits, whatever you love.
