Charlene's "grandma's Cookies"

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Pamela

I received these as part of a Christmas bake exchange. Charlene was kind enough to share the recipe with me! This makes a huge recipe but these freeze very well.

I have made these a couple of times and while they are good in their own way, they just never make me inspired to make them a member of the permanent recipe collection. I find them just a little too spongy, almost a slightly more solid scone. I may be biased though, I am looking for the a recipe that replicates the round frosted cookies with sprinkles that are sold in plastic "clam shells" or the large round ones with pink frosting sold individually wrapped at convenience stores.
