My Aunt makes these for every family get-together. They are so good our family fights over them as soon as they are brought out. This recipe is from an older version of the Betty Crocker Cookbook. I bought the new one and unfortunately it wasn't in there. I had to copy it out of my Aunt's version. The cookies are soft and cake-like. Enjoy!
