    charlened's Note:

    I just made these from the Dec 2005 Good HouseKeeping magazine. The recipe was submitted by Faye Holloway of Tallulah, LA.I had to put them in the freezer or they would all be gone! The book says 8 dozen, I only got about 4.

      These were the worst sugar cookies I have ever made. I did not care for the flavor and they were very dry. They did not melt in my mouth. I tried them plain, sugar on top then tried with frosting them. Nothing helped.
