1 t. salt

Blend shortening and sugars; add eggs. Add flour mixture. Cookie dough will be stiff. Shape into logs, about 3. Wrap in plastic wrap or wax paper. Freeze or chill until firm. Slice 1/4″ slices and bake at 350 oven for approx 10 minutes.
If you use butter instead of shortening, cookies will be chewy instead of crunchy.
