This is one from one of my grandmothers, Dorothy Wadkins. She baked these for a cookie swap my mom & I threw a couple of years ago. Pretty simple, but very tasty.

LOL, Ang....I actually think that you can buy it premade, but you can just mis about 1 tsp of cinnamon to 2 TBSP of sugar...probably have to double or triple it for the recipe. These cookies are fantastic, by the way. Happy baking :)
