Don't worry Coralie, uwasvwaya is rude to many in her reviews. If you click on her user name and look at the reviews written, many were rude and demeaning, even hateful towards others. You shouldn't be made to feel stupid for asking a question. Some people have more experience than others and the only way to learn is to ask. While I do think it is more expensive to buy Crisco in stick form than it is to buy it buy the tub and measure it out each time, I also think it is easier and a lot less mess. You're the one using and paying for it, so it should be your choice. It certainly doesn't make you lazy. Also, she was wrong because each stick is one cup, unlike a stick of butter which is a 1/2 cup. Good luck!


I pretty much followed the recipe, though I did decrease the sugar by half a cup. I don't like things so sweet so they were perfect for me this way. I didnt have crisco, so I just subbed margarine. The cookies turned great- very soft. After my first batch I tried making them a bit smaller and patting them down to flatten before putting them in the oven. When sandwiched they are really big! The problem with making them smaller/thinner is they become more delicate. You might want to experiment a bit with the size. The fudge turned out great. I made it on the stove in a double boiler (afraid of burning the chocolate in the microwave). I added just a pinch of salt to the chips and condensed milk, as this is usually called for when I have made fudge in other recipes. Overall, really good and would be fun to do with kids.

Peanut butter and chocolate make for a perfect combination.
