This is a very old recipe I got from my late Mother in Law a long time ago. She named it "Noel Cookies" but I changed it because it is just an all around great cookie and is great year round. I hope you will give them a try and will enjoy them as much as we have through the years.
I would always make a double or triple batch as they'd be gone too fast if I only made a single batch.
