Cant remember where I found this recipe, have made them since I was Fifteen, but It Is a favorite of mine now and I can add Different Ingredients to the recipe like chocolate chips or change the flavoring to peppermint for Christmas, as I did in 2010.you can Add sprinkles or colored sugars,crushed peppermint candies on top depending on the holiday, Just roll them into balls Instead if using chocolate chips in dough and use a fork to make crisscrosses on top, then sprinkle with desired topping.
