This is my recipe is from my paternal grandparents and was always called "Mother and Dad Horman's Ice Box Cookies" in our family. No, I didn't just mispell my last name. It was whoever filled out my father's birth certificate who did it!

The card in the recipe box has lots of annotations by my father and they are included here in quotes.

I haven't made this recipe as an adult so I'm just including all the annotations here.
