I have made these countless times and am asked for the recipe lots of times too. I used extra large eggs so I put in five and a half cups of flour. I baked them at 350 for 12 minutes and the recipe made 75 cookies.

I made these and they were good straight out of the oven. I wish that they would have stayed softer.

Okay!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Made these for Christmas for my husband,our daughter and her family and my son and daughter-in-law and their family. THESE WERE THE BEST COOKIE I HAVE EVER MADE AND THAT'S 45 YEARS OF BAKING. They only thing I did different was to chill the dough and place in clear wrap and roll into logs. Then I sliced them and dipped the slices into different kinds of sugars and jimmies.
