In a large mixing bowl, beat together the shortening, sugar, baking soda, salt, vanilla, and flavor till smooth. Add the eggs, again beating till smooth.
Add the flour and jellybeans, and beat until the mixture is smooth. Using a tablespoon cookie scoop, drop mounds of dough about 2 inches apart on lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheets.
Bake the cookies in a preheated 350°F oven for about 20 minutes, or until they're a very light golden brown around the edges. Remove them from the oven, and cool on a wire rack.
