A cookie a day ~ (well some days!) - Brown Sugar Cookies!

We had a really nice day here in Minnesota - like on Monday - since then it has been cloudy and breezy and downright chilly - last night I could just NOT get warmed up - went to bed with socks on and an extra fuzzy blanket added for warmth!  That is all on top of having my thermostat set at 72!  I think I need to follow my daughter to San Diego.  Here is a cookie that is sure to warm up the kitchen (while you are baking) and warm the hearts of your friends and loved ones too.

Brown Sugar Cookies
1/2 c. Crisco shortening
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 1/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Heat your oven to 350 degrees.  Beat together your ingredients.  Using a cookie scoop place 2" apart on yoru baking sheet.  Bake 12-14 minutes, until golden brown.  Cool.  If desired, dip in melted chocolate or white chocolate and use embellishments as desired - or just eat them plain! So good either way!
