This recipe was found in an old cookbook title "Cooking With Pioneers", published in Tennessee. Very easy cookie recipe made with easily found ingredients. Recipe says it makes 6 dozen, but I got about 40 cookies out of it.

I loved these cookies! Mine flattened out like a pancake, but I can alter that next time. They have a crispy crunch and yet are chewey. I was craving something sweet and this was it! Thanks for sharing Jay, I'll make these again for sure! *Made for PAC Spring 2008*
