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

so light and delicate

MY REVIEW

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!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 1, 2014

TASTY and EASY! I've found that pressing the dough flat on the cookie sheet prior to baking produces a crispy, better-tasting cookie.

I like that this recipe is flexible enough to allow for PLENTY of room to add ingredients to one's personal liking.
