Pound Cookies

35 mins (prep 15, cooking 20)
7 ingredients
60-70 servings
This recipe came from my great-grandmother. It's very similar to reposteria cookies that you can get in Mexican bakeries in San Antonio, Texas. We make them year round but they are especially nice at Christmas time. Use Crisco brand shortening for best results.
