Mary Jane's Delicious Cookies

This family recipe was almost lost. Grandma gave this recipe to Mary S. after the dementia set in. Sarah was at Mary's after Grandma's funeral getting a recipe. This recipe fell out of Mary's box and Sarah picked it up, recognizing her mother's handwriting. Mary pled with Sarah to let her keep it saying that Grandma had given it to her. Sarah made her a copy and the original recipe is in Sarah's recipe box and now here.

great crispy cookies, I used butter in place of margaine and omitted the coconut, 10 minutes baking time was more than enough in my air-bake convection oven, thanks for sharing!...Kitten
