I'd been searching for this recipe for years. My mom made these all the time, especially at the holidays and since she passed away, I couldn't find her recipes anywhere. The best way to do these is the roll method. Make into two logs, wrap in waxed paper and put in the fridge. Then you can just slice off what you want and bake so you always have fresh cookies when you want them. We under bake them a bit so they are crunchy on the outside but chewy. Thanks Jellyqueen for posting! I cried making these today, but, in a good way. :)
