"I just love it when someone claims to have followed a recipe "perfectly" except they did things differently in three ways, and then gives the recipe a poor rating-(don't you?) For those who aren't aw..." See moreare, a stick of Crisco is equal to 1 cup, so if you don't have the sticks, just measure out a cup and you're fine."
"Crunchy outside, gooey, chocolatey inside. Very good for chocolate lovers. Important to remember 1 stick of Crisco is 1 c. as opposed to 1 stick of margarine being 1/2 c. - perhaps this is why other..." See mores thought they were too sticky or too dry. Made exactly as written except that I used Hershey's Special Dark cocoa and they were just right. Don't skip the rolling in granulated sugar step. It makes the powdered sugar not soak into the cookies while baking and gives the snow capped look!"
"Delicious, super easy cookies. I substituted a stick of butter for the Crisco, and had no problems. They look just like the main picture! I also substituted butterscotch chips for the chocolate chips..." See more (since they were on sale) for delicious results. They are difficult to tell when they're done, but you can touch the tops with a fork - once they don't jiggle or move, they're done. For the curious: I know Crisco measures 1 stick = 1 cup, and butter is 1 stick = 1/2 cup, but for whatever reason, 1 stick of butter worked just fine."
