    Starrynews's Note:

    The easiest of my great-grandmother's traditional Christmas cookies, fondly recalled by the family as the "Shoebox Cookies," to make. I see that there are several variations on the recipe up, but not her version, so here it is.

      I increased the ingredient amounts by half, and instead of making drop cookies, I poured the whole thing into foil-lined, 7" x 11" pan that I coated with cooking spray. I then put the pan into the freezer for about 2hrs to firm up. I removed the pan, peeled off the foil & cut the "cookies" into 1" squares. ( I just didn't have the patience to fuss with dropping them from spoons). These are a very sweet treat, so just a small piece works.

      These are wonderful! Made as directed, only next time, I will switch from using a tablespoon to a teaspoon when dropping them because they are such sweet morsels! Thanks, StarryNews! Made for Spring 2010 PAC.

      These were super easy; it's has been a long time since I made these particular cookies, and I'd forgotten how easy they are! DS and DH gobbled them up! I made as directed and dropped by tablespoons onto wax paper. My yield was 16, but they may have been a bit to big...Thanks so much for sharing, Starry!
