Cookie Lady's Spice Drop Cookies

My Grandmother made the best cookies ever and earned the nickname "The Cookie Lady" where she lived. This recipe is absolutely our family favorite. Grandma's directions tend to be sketchy but, after many attempts, my Mom was finally able to make these have the texture and taste of her Mother's. Be prepared to make several batches as these move quickly and the recipe doesn't make nearly enough. I tend to make 4 batches at a time.
