I am not sure how many cookies this makes. I made it last Christmas and mailed some up to my kids as gifts. Just looking at the photo sure brings back good memories of when my mom used to make them. She did a lot of baking and would make these as well as other goodies and give them to friends as gifts. I just made this tonight 12-13-14 and it makes 36 big soft cookies. I put small blobs on the cookie sheet and they spread out.
