This recipe comes from my grandmother, Julia May Miller, who died in 1950. Maybe I never ate one she made. However, my mom made this recipe probably a thousand times while I lived at home.

While not at all fancy, these cookies are just plain delicious. They have been loved by five generations of my family!
