    AlabamaGirl71's Note:

    Everyone I've ever made these cookies for describes them as very similar to tea cakes; they are very fluffy with a unique flavor. The recipe was given to me by a close friend of my great-aunt Jackie. They are YUM YUM good!!

      Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I have not had these since my grandmother, who was born and raised Amish, passed away. I have been searching for this recipe for so very long. THANK YOU! PS - DELICIOUS!

      These cookies were excellent. I will add these to my Christmas cookie list. Very easy to make and they don't take long to bake. These cookies were so fluffy and it was like having your own cake.
