I baked these cookies this fall and gave some to a friend. Needless to say she said they were the best she has ever tasted and of course requested the recipe! Excellent cookies!
Have made these for years now...and still our favorite!
I have prepared these cookies before-in fact, one of my nieces had requested these cookies back in 1996 for her 11th birthday & she'll be 27! I plan to prepare these again this week! Thank you for this recipe!
Yummy! First time making this type of cookie so I have nothing to compare to. My batch was crunchy and tasty!
Simple and delicious!
