A coworker of mine gave me this recipe. There isn't one exactly like it on Zaar, in that it uses allspice and has no eggs. It is a dense, spicy cookie that is rolled out and cut into shapes. Cooking time includes time to chill dough. I have halved the amounts in the original recipe because it made SO many cookies; hence the weird measurement for the shortening. It was originally 1/3 c. shortening, and this is the best I could come up with for getting half of that. Be sure not to roll them thinner than 1/4 - 1/2 inch (nor overbake) so that they keep their good, dense, kinda chewy texture.
