Wrong  Right!  1. Check oven racks for correct placement.
2. Preheat oven to 350 F. a. If the oven temperature is not accurate it can affect the texture off the cookies. They may get dark around the edges if it is too hot. b. Avoid opening the oven door during baking. 3. In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugars on medium speed for 3 minutes. a. Cream means to beat ingredients, such as shortening and sugar, combining until soft and creamy. 4. Add egg and beat well. 5. Add vanilla and beat. 6.
