Mmmm...just like Mom used to make! A soft, scrumptious, sugary delight! These are perfect for the children on a crisp afternoon after school or for the adults (after the kids are in bed) in front of a nice cozy fire. Ahhhh, the memories!

Delicious cookies and very easy to make too. I added a chocolate wafer on top of each cookie immediately after taking them out of the oven. Yum-yum!!! Thanks for posting this recipe. Made for a great group of 4th grade students who deserve a treat from their library lady.

I love this recipe, Since I live at 8700 feet there are not alot of cookies that turn out with out alteration to the recipe and these you do not have to. We make these every year at our cousin cookie day. And are gone before anyone goes home. So now we triple the recipe. Hope you enjoy them as much as my family does!!!
