This is an old family recipe that has been handed down. I have made some changes~I prefer the butter flavor crisco, and we love the cookie dough being rolled in Sugar in the Raw rather than plain white sugar. These cookies always disappear fast!!!

I take these on the Spring Break Ski trip with our friends and all the kids (young & old) just love them, they are usually gone before we head home!!!
