We always enjoyed these cookies during the Holidays at Gram's..This was one we could help her make..But mostly we liked licking our fingers when we were done..we loved the powdered sugar we rolled them in...we could never get away with sneaking a few cookies to eat-- the powdered sugar on our faces always gave us away.
Loved her Brown Sugar Cookies too.. (posted)
