      EVERYBODY loved these cookies. I took them to work and the guys inhaled them. My mom served them at a class meeting and they all liked them... then she took them to the gals at the bowling alley and they loved them, too. So.. this recipe is for sure a keeper. Thank you. I found that I didn't have to put them so far apart on the cookie sheet as they didn't spread out very much. I'll certainly add these to my holiday cookie list.
