  3. Roll in mixture of 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon.

I had misplaced my recipe and used this one instead. It is excellent and made exactly 60 cookies as promised. I have added it to my own collection now. Many thanks for sharing.

My recipe for these is long gone, but I used to make them all the time when my sons were growing up. It didn't take long for a batch to disappear. Thank you for adding your recipe to the data base. They were perfect and I'm certain that I will be making them often once more.
