My daughter and grand daughter live away and won't be here for the holidays, so I'm going to try to get the cookies done for mailing.
Probably send them a fruit cake too, even though I know my daughter doesn't like them lol Her grand ma will lol.

I am looking for a cookie recipe my big sister sent to me many years ago. When I realized I had lost it, I called her...and she no longer has the recipe in her collection. Sob....
The cookie is a brown-sugar based drop cookie with a date filling. They are melt-in-your-mouth good. I haven't been able to recreate the recipe. If any of you have it, or one similar to it, I'll be pleased as punch!
I'm looking forward to trying all your cookie recipes. Just have to find someone to give most of them away to as hubby and I are trying once again to get some weight off. When I bake cookies, I send half of them to work with hubby, then I freeze the rest in vacuum bags of 2 to 5 cookies and bury them in the bottom of the freezer. I've really got to want them to dig down to get to them!
