Tip: I used butter once because I did not have shortening and the results are similar however they kind of "melted" more when they cooked. The ones with shortening keep a better shape. However if you don't have shortening do not be afraid to use butter.
Keep on eye on them because depending on the size you make the may cook quicker. Also leave some space in between because the grow.
Serve them plain, or with butter or jam or clotted cream.
