This recipe was handed down from my mother. My entire family loves it.
The dough freezes well. I cut the dough in half before I freeze it just in case company comes and I want to make a quick dessert.
I often made it around Christmas and sent plates to share
with friends and family. The fried cookies should be eaten the same day or wrapped well and put in the freezer for another day.
