For the first 5 years of my life, we lived in an apartment building in Kew Gardens, Queens. You'd walk into the hallway and you could smell everyone's cooking .. Walk past Wanda's door and the aroma of cookies in the oven filled my nostrils...that was one of the happiest times of my life! Here's the recipe Wanda gave my mom...

I had a hard time working with this dough. It was just too soft. I chilled it overnight and still couldn't work it.Perhaps some additional flour would help.
