When my Aunt married my Uncle, a little, round, rosy cheeked Welshman, his grandmother sent this recipe as a wedding gift. I always looked forward to their visits from PA, and these cookies would always accompany them. They've been gone a long time now, but I'll always remember them and these simple, but delicious cookies.
