This is an old recipe my mother found stashed away in her recipe box. This comes from my Great, Great, Great Grandmother Minnie Bindlick, who was Pennsylvania Dutch. She used to make these cookies for large family and church gatherings. As you can see from the amounts, it makes MANY cookies. Please note the amount of cookies this recipe produces is estimated. I took a good guess, as I haven't tried it yet. Perhaps someone will try this recipe and let me know.
