I found this recipe in a cookbook a Lady that I went to High School with has put together. These have become my favorite cookies to make. I made some for a little league All-Star team for their bakes sale & the whole box (about 4 dozen) sold for $10.00. Talkin about tickled pink! Just love the way they look comin outta the oven & makes the house smell wonderful!
