This recipe came from Big Birds Busy Book, from back in the 70's.
A basic, somewhat soft sugar cookie - a good first cookie for small children. This was the first home baked cookie for each of my 3 kids.
Only thing - not quite right for rolling/shaping/ decorating, just not firm enough.
The cookies are super yummy though!! :o)
