A childhood favorite passed down from my grandmother.

A quick & easy recipe that results in good cookies! I used Neilson's macaroons & an air bake cookie sheet - they required 10 minutes. If you only have 1 cookie sheet (like me), be sure to return the dough to the fridge while the first batch is baking. Its much easier to shape the balls when the dough is cold. Thanx Kimke!
