This has been in my family for 5 generations!They never get hard. Light and fluffy, just the right amount of sweetness. Once you try these you will never use any other recipe!I don't! Hint: The dough is just as good as the finished cookie!! I always think of my Grandma when I make these with my little girls, I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
