    You can also use a slice of apple to store with them to soften them up. Bread pieces or apple also works to soften brown sugar...

    Its true, check the oven temp with a thermometer. It may be very different than what you think it is supposed to be--let us know what you are baking!

    This is the recipe that my DD gave me

    TERRI'S TEA CAKES


    2 cups sugar 1 tsp baking soda
    2 eggs 2 tsp baking powder
    2 tsp vanilla 2 Tbsp sweet milk
    1 cup shortening 3 1/2 cups self-rising flour


    Mix sugar, eggs, vanilla, shortening, soda, baking powder and milk together in large bowl. Work flour in a little at a time until mixed thouroughly. Roll dough into balls about the size of a quater and placed on greased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with fingers. Bake at 350 until lightly brown.


    She and my sister both make these and they are always soft.

    Sound yummy! I would really go back to checking your oven temperature and shave a minute or so off your bake time. There's no butter and its all white sugar, I can't see where there is anything else that would affect the softness of the cookie. Don't trust the accuracy, get a thermometer and bake a few at a time for just one or two minutes less...see if that makes a difference.
