This recipe was given to me by my Aunt Gail during my bridal shower back in 1992. I make these cookies for every holiday and occasion in between.

Two men in my life - my son and grandson - are going to be begging for these cookies.  They love the soft cookies that you get at the grocery store, and these are even better! I better start pre-heating the oven now... The Test Kitchen
