My mother-in-law Bobbie Davis was a fabulous cook and every year the whole family looked forward to her baking cookies. Her sister Betty was the candy maker in the family. This was a recipe she got from a long time friend of her mother's Eloise. The cookie is light and airy melt in your mouth delight. I hope you enjoy.
