This simple yet divine recipe was handed down to me by my grandmother many years ago. It has a unique dough produces a soft, tender, buttery, yet crispy cookie that melts in your mouth. I will say that high-quality butter, vanilla, eggs, and flour will make a big difference in the taste, as subpar quality will show through with such mild flavors at play. This makes a large batch of 3 dozen or so, and can easily be halved. Enjoy!
