Posted per a request. This is a Great Aunt's recipe from our Family Recipe Cookbook. I'm not sure how many cookies it makes or the prep time(probably varies depending on ingredients you include)

This recipe was posted for me, and thank you very much for posting it. I made so many cookies for Christmas with this recipe. I think I made 2 or 3 batches, and it produced countless cookies. I added so many different things to make so many different kinds of cookies. Some things I added: coccoa powder (to make chocolate), chocolate chunks, nuts, butterscotch, cinnamon, chopped peanutbutter cup, and cookie cutters by adding a little extra flour. Thank you very much for taking the time to post this!
