Ma always liked these cookies, so I baked them especially for her any time we knew she would be visiting for the holidays. Later on in life, she asked me to make her pecan pie, which I also happily did for her. These cookies are great with a cup of tea (or coffee if you prefer), not to sweet, but just sweet enough, just like Ma.
