This is an old family recipe made by my deceased Grandma (Bertha) Tom. Back in the day we would be working on the farm bailing hay or whatever and she would make a fresh batch of these cookies.
They are a multi-generation family favorite and especially good with or dipped in a cold glass of milk.

I hope you enjoy them.
