  1. I am so sorry I forgot to rate this when I made these for X-mas. I made these for my Mother-in-Law. She has not had these cookies since her Mother-in -Law died years ago She remembers them with dated so that is the only change I made and she said they were as she'd remembered. My husband didn't remember the cookie until he tried it and thinks these have top C C cookies. I was just going to make cookies and I remember how they both enjoyed these cookies so that sparkled the rating and review. Thank-you so much for making 2 very special people very happy and bringing back nice memories for them.


I got married to my high school sweetheart in August 06 at the ripe old age of 21, and my husband Luke and I just moved to Birmingham, AL from Auburn. He's in his second year of dental school at UAB. I have a BFA in Graphic Design, and I'm a designer at Time Inc and doing freelance design work on the side. I'm planning to go to grad school for a Master's of Fine Arts in Book Arts some time or another. I had deferred because I think the timing will be better once Luke gets out of school and perhaps I might not need to commute the hour over there. Getting married and getting HALF of a refrigerator instead of sharing one with seven other girls really ignited a cooking fire in me! Lately I've been trying to cut out the sugar, which is hard, because Luke likes sugary pancakes and cereal, and because I like baking things. I need to quit baking! Trying to lose the newlywed nine so I can fit into my winter clothes.
