Ingredients:  
1 cup Crisco
2 cup Brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
4 cup flour (little more if needed)
1 tsp soda
vanilla to taste
3 eggs

Directions:
Directions:
Mix ingredients to form a dough. Roll the dough into a log or form into a rectangle or cylindrical block, then chill, for 12 or more hours. This stiffens the dough, making it easier to cut it into 1/8-inch thick rounds or squares of dough.

After they have been cut, the dough is then placed 1 to 2-inches apart on lightly greased, parchment paper covered sheet pans. Bake the cookie dough in a moderate 350 oven, until edges just begin to turn golden (about seven minutes).

Personal Notes:
This is my German step-grandmother's recipe. My mother made these cookies when I was growing up, and I can still remember sneaking into the refrigerator to cut off chunks of the cookie dough to eat. I don't know that she ever actually even baked that many of them, as my sister and I preferred to simply eat the "dough cookies".
