  10. I was thinking to try these but can't get shortening ... do you think it would be ok to just use more butter in place of the shortening ?

  12. I just got here to check out the recipe, because the pic looks delicious! Yep, they pretty much go together like a Mexican polvoron cookie. Except no butter only shortening. Love your idea for making a cool whip sandwich!
