Yes Jean Perryman, you can use crisco for the shortening or any other, such as one I have used, from Nutiva, coconut shortening.

As I read this new version, I thought, doesn’t have enough peanut butter. I was right. needs more, other than that they were tasty. however my own recipe is much simpler and I will most likely go back to it. thanks for the chance to try something new. : )

Is Crisco the right kind of shortening to use????

When mixing it never said to add the milk so I forgot. I cooked the first batch and about four minutes in I saw they were not spreading so I took them out and looked at the recipe and forgot milk. I added milk to it all and they were OK. So don’t forget milk.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
