I'm not sure where I got this recipe, but these cookies get rave reviews (and recipe requests) when ever I make them. You can make them as directed, but they are also good if you add nuts or chocolate chips or what ever you like in your cookies. I've made them with chocolate chips or just hazelnuts and both were delicious. My children love them, as well. They make the house smell wonderful when ever I bake them!


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

These cookies are very good. My DD made them with Spenda, plus she added some semi sweet and white chocolate chips to them.
