When I was a little girl we spent a few summers at my grandma's house in So.IL. Whenever we were there, my grandma would whip up these cookies. According to the handwritten recipe that I inherited from her estate she created this recipe on her own. My grandma was very innovative in the kitchen. I miss her cooking something fierce! I plan on getting more of her recipes out here in the coming days/weeks/months. :) I hope you enjoy these cookies. I have never made them myself (mostly because I never seem to have all the ingredients), but I ate them by the dozen all those memorable summers ago!
