Chris Harwood - I have this in Grandma Jennie's handwriting with a note "these are good for Leia to eat". If you want a soft cookie roll them out thicker, for crisp, thin.
Ilo Rhines - Jennie Sophia Wilhelmenia Musfelt Rowell Schmidt was never without cookies. She often bought Oreo's for the grandkids, but usually had some baked.
