    My mother always called these “Old Fashioned” cookies. I read through the ingredients to see if it sounded familiar and when I hit shortening I knew it was the same. I will also pass this on to my brother who loved these cookies. Thanks for the memories in a roundabout way.

    I first had them when they were prepared by my in-laws who had Welsh ancestry and they called them “Welsh cookies”. A friend whose mother came from Cardiff, Wales called them “Griddle cakes”. They are especially good when lard is used instead of vegetable shortening. Posting this recipe is a great idea. Keep ’em coming.
