This recipe has been passed down from my grandmother to my mother to me. It is a tradition to make these cookies every Christmas. Everyone love these cookies, my mother made me promise before she passed away that I would continue to make these cookies for everyone that works with me and my handicapped brother. And of course for my family. I average over 500 to almost a 1000 cookies each year. Hope you enjoy them.

This will depend on how hard you want the cookies. If you want them crisper bake for 10 minutes, softer cookies, 8 minutes. Let cool on cookie rack.
