    It is a very good recipe to make with kids. I figured my son would love working the shortening into the mix with his hands tonight when we made it. He tried it and said since it didn’t taste good and was all over his hands, he didn’t want to finish. He probably thought it would taste like cookie dough! lol Yummy when baked though!

    This looks like a fun recipe to bake with kids – some hands on steps, and not too difficult.
