I get stuck in a rut of making chocolate chip cookies. This is a unique cookie recipe from my grandmother.

This came together so easily! I was amazed! My cookies are still currently cooling as we speak (the oven time was perfect! Usually I have to take them out a bit earlier than projected.) I am so excited for these cookies because I'm sure if they taste as good as they smell, it will be more than easy to keep my shelves stocked with these easy ingredients. I also agree with the reviewer below, there are so many possibilities!
