These easy-to-make cookies simply melt in your mouth! I've passed the recipe around to many friends. After I gave the recipe to my sister, she entered the cookies in a local fair and won the "best of show" prize! —Sylvia Ford, Kennett, Missouri

Very tasty cookies that were easy to make. I have made these a few times and sometimes change the recipe a bit. Using almond extract instead of vanilla really gives it a nice flavor and I like the idea of cinnamon that was suggested and will give that a try as well. This is a recipe worth keeping.

These are AWESOME! I added peppermint extract and cinnamon. They tasted great and were easy to make!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 6, 2014

I have made these cookies for several years, now. They are always in demand with my family and friends. I sometimes add 1/4 cup of ground pecans to turn them into a Pecan Sandy, and at Christmas, I add 1/4 cup of finely crushed candy canes. Great all three ways!
