I have fond memories of helping my grandmother make these delicious cookies. It was a family favorite and she brought it to gatherings often.

She gave me the recipe in 1967 when I was getting married. Over the years it "disappeared". Imagine my excitement when I found it recently.

This is a crispy cooke that is not too sweet. I hope this will be a memory for my grandchildren.
