My great grandmother used to make these cookies all the time. When she passed in 1996, no one else made them, until recently when I found her recipe box. Hope you guys enjoy them as much as I do. Note: When I made them, I didn't bother counting to see how many cookies came from one full batch, I will however estimate.
