Melissa Frances Recipe Exchange!

Have you been to the Melissa Frances blog lately? We are having a fun recipe exchange! There is going to be a prize as well!

Here is my family favorite have seen it on my blog before....
Jam Jams
1c. brown sugar
1c. shortning (crisco blue box)
6tbsp syrup (rogers)

2tsp. baking soda

1tsp. vanilla

Flour to make a soft dough (3-5c.)

Cream together your shortning and sugar Add the eggs, syrup, and vanilla Sprinkle in the soda Gradually add the flour, just enough so that the dough pulls away from the perimeter of the bowl. Roll out to desired thickness and cut into shapes. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 7 min (or until lightly golden brown) Sandwich your cookies with your favorite homemade jam. I love raspberry, nice and tart!

Remember the scrapbook page I did with these cookies?

You can see the close ups back in THIS POST.

So hop on over to Melissa Frances' Blog and link up a family favorite to be entered in the draw for a fun prize! Looking forward to checking out those recipes!
