This recipe was given to me years ago while visiting an aunt in Iowa. It is so easy that even my sister who can't bake to save her life, got them to turn out.
INGREDIENTS (for 7 servings):
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 pinch salt
- 3/4 cup shortening
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 (3 ounce) packages instant lemon pudding mix
- 3 eggs
Sift flour with baking soda and salt. Cream shortening, and then add sugar and pudding mix. Cream until light and fluffy. Add eggs and mix well; then add flour mixture. Mix until well-blended.
Drop teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 8-10 minutes.
