    Chef burnt toast's Note:

    This is a classic family recipe that we use as either a "make into balls and squish them" recipe or a roll out and get out the fancy cookie cutters recipe.

      Oh, boy, are these good?! I made only half the recipe and got exactly 18 cookies (about 2" size). It took about 15 minutes to bake and I lowered to 300 5 minutes before they were done. (Might be my oven.) I was afraid they would stick to my hands, so I used a spoon to scoop them to the cookie pan. I decided to try one and easily rolled it by hand. Not sure I'd be able to roll them though... Thanks for sharing your family recipe, Chef Burnt Toast! ;-)

      I added a 1/2 c. of mini chocolate chips. This has now replaced my old recipe of 40 years.
