If you want to bake a batch of cookies with butter flavored shortening, here’s a recipe. These are cheap, quick oatmeal chip cookies with a great texture. The flavor is pretty good too, especially if you use half butter and half butter flavored shortening.
Cheap, Quick Oatmeal Chip Cookies
Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies made with shortening.
- 1/2 stick 8 tablespoons Butter Flavored Crisco (regular is okay)
- 1 cup granulated sugar (200 grams)
- 1 tablespoon molasses (20 grams)
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all purpose flour (140 grams)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup oats quick cooking or old fashioned, not instant
- 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips or semi-sweet
- In a large mixing bowl, beat shortening and sugar with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat in molasses, egg and vanilla.
- Stir together flour, baking soda and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and stir until incorporated. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.
- Chill dough for 1 hour for thicker cookies, or bake immediately. To bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Form dough into 1 ½ inch balls and arrange 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 12-13 minutes. Cool 5 minutes. Remove from sheet and cool on rack.

Brenda, there’s a no weep meringue recipe here:
I haven’t tried it, though. Also, the recipe I’m using is topped with whipped cream.
Kraft has some excellent recipes — a bunch, actually. I wanted to make a scratch version first, but I suspect some Jell-O pudding versions will follow suit. If I make the scratch version, I can compare the two.
My husband loves coconut cream pie. I have made one every Thanksgiving and Christmas since I met him. I finally perfected the recipe when I used cook & serve vanilla pudding…lol! So much easier than making a pudding. I’m still working on getting the meringue to not weep…any ideas? I seal it to the edges but it still weeps at times.
I had those cinnamon chips once. Unfortunately, I ended up eating them all straight from the bag before I could make anything with them!
