asks for shortening in ingredients but doesnt say when to put it in anywhere in the recipe i tried to batches one w/o the shortening and one w/ neither one came out right to sticky to be able to roll out and cut so i put more flour and they ended up coming up to cakey and bread tasting. I have no idea what to suggest to make this better.
