When I was working at the Child Development Center at Mountain Home AFB, ID, there was a woman who worked there named Gidget. She was an awesome lady and this was her recipe that she would bring at Christmas for cookie swaps. She died a couple of years ago, but I still make these every Christmas. I think of Gidget when I'm making them :-) You can't eat just one.
