well i made the ones with just egg, sugar and milk. Very easy recipe, mix and throw in the oven. I think I might experiment with some flour, because they are very fragile... They taste awesome...I'm glad I made a double batch..they made a great treat for game play tonight!

Shortening is Crisco Shortening. It comes in a can or little squares.
Powdered sugar is Confectioners Powdered Sugar. It's white and you use it to make icings etc. It's powdered. It should read on the bag Pure Cane Sugar Confectioners Powdered.

To comment on e-mail #5 that is the recipe I use all the time and its my weeny dog`s favorite cookie. I have never seen a dog that loves peanut butter the way Buster does.

Ok it's Crisco brand Shortening but what exactly IS shortening? Is it Dairy like butter or animal fat like Lard?
The sugar sounds like what we would call Icing Sugar... I don't think the other name for it exists here..

icing sugar is confectioners sugar or powdered sugar or sugar that is very fine combined in its' packaging with corn starch.

Crisco is shortening that is solid, white, thick and not necessarily made from animal fat but rather vegetable fat.
Crisco is one of the top sellers here in the states but any brand would do. personally and I'll go on record here, I prefer butter to crisco in peanut butter cookies but the solid shortening does produce a very tender cookie which I think is aided by the use of the confectioners sugar/aka/icing sugar in this particular recipe... hope that helps you understand the ingredients more.
