    MSZANZ's Note:

    Our family "adopts" many new people as they enter our lives through the military, college, work, etc. I always ask them to bring a "family tradition" dish with them when they attend holiday meals and then we incorporate their traditions with ours. I have gathered many favorites over the years by doing this and there is a fond memory attached to each recipe. This cookie came from a college friend of my cousin Jane. It is simple in flavor (not too sweet) and is like a cake cookie.

      These cookies are super easy to make. I was surprised (even after everyone else's comments) at how light and fluffy these cookies were. They truly are like muffin tops rather than cookies. They hold shape while baking, which I wasn't expecting either (which was quite nice). They aren't super sweet, so I may decide to make a little powdered sugar/water drizzle over the top for a decorative glaze, just to add some depth to the flavor.

      Mmm these are fabulous. They're even better when they've cooled off. My new favorite cookie...and everyone loved them.
