My sister made these cookies every Christmas as afar back as I can remember, and with me being the baby and my siblings being a bit older than myself, I dont remember any of them living at home when I was growing up but I do remember all the special events we had together :) When I started my family I wanted to share some of the great memories and tastes that I had as a child with my own children. I would call my sister around Thanksgiving and request this cookie recipe from her, and I would have to call her every year do to my misplacement of this recipe. So to my amazement I found this written in one of my cookbooks last night.. Go figure!! Enjoy
