Burke's Soft Cakemix Cookies

Krista Hiner


This recipe was handed down from a friend about two years before she died of a brain aneurysm. She always made the best cookies, bringing us a variety of her batches throughout the year. I am so grateful to have her recipes to pass on for others to enjoy just as we have.
