A friend shared this recipe with me many years ago and we think they are simply good! My family has never tired of them. They are a thin soft cookie that stores well. Makes about 3 dozen.

My mother in law won't even eat them! They took twice as long to cook as stated and tasted like salt and flour...eww be safe and pick another recipe otherwise use butter and 1/4th tsp of both salt and baking soda

These are very good! Delicious warm from the oven, and still soft after they've cooled. I substituted 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour for all-purpose, and added 2 cups of chocolate chips. I got 5 dozen cookies from this recipe!
