Brown Sugar Drops

Dawn Cook


This cookie followed my son through his school years and is still a favorite of my husband and his co-workers.
They are a soft cookie that is wonderful with milk,coffee, tea or just reaching into the cookie jar. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family has these past 30 years.
