Oh my goodness! These are the cookies I remember growing up with! Thank you ChaCha! I will be making these for years to come! I will make sure to get a photo as I'll be making these again in the next few days - the first batch didn't make it past mine and my sisters and brother's mouths almost as soon as they came out of the oven! :) Made for KK Christmas Cookie Event
