Jennifer's notes for this recipe:
Even in making a "family" cookbook, there are times when someone extremely close to the family shares a recipe from their family. This is the case here. Linda Fischer, my children's pastor, is an amazing close personal friend. Her personality is like no one else's I know. She, along with her two daughters, attended our cookie swap, and shared her grandmother's recipe with us. We are so blessed to have her in our lives, she is like a sister to me, and therefore, earned a spot in the family cookbook.

I can hardly wait to try this recipe, (but have to wait a few days since I just baked your wonderful Pecan Coconut Cookies!) Buttermilk makes almost everything taste better & I'm sure this will be no exception. Thanks!
