This is my favorite holiday cookie. To make them especially festive, dip one side in holiday sprinkles before baking.

I gave this 5 stars. My family loves these cookies. I got this recipe from my Home Ec. Class when in school. The recipe tells how to make Brown Sugar Crispies - Substitute 1/2 cup packed brown sugar for the white sugar. Thanks for posting such a yummy recipe! Christine (internetnut)
