Hello, I am from Australia and believe it or not but shortening is not easy to find so I was wondering if it was possible to substitute with butter instead. I apologize as a Grandmama's recipe is always treasured. Sweetest regards, Anna
Anna, you can substitute butter in this recipe, but the cookies may spread/flatten more than they would with shortening. hope this helps....
Are you able to convert the recipe into grams or ounces please - we do not have cups in the UK.
