My mother got this recipe in about 1910 when she was a housekeeper and cook for the local physician. The doctor's wife was an excellent cook and taught my mother of lot of her cooking techniques.
The cookies soon became a favorite in our home and, when I got married and had a family of my own, they were a favorite throughout the years.
My five children also enjoy baking these cookies for their own families—it's a real family tradition.
With just a few simple ingredients from the pantry, you can whip up a batch o Olga Austin's sweet morsels in no Time! "It's such a yummy recipe," she notes from her Lodi, New Jersey kitchen. "Not only is it easy, it makes dozens without much fuss."
