Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at time, beating well after each addition.

"These are the cookies my mom made for us as we were growing up in Geneva, AL. They are the best cookies that I have eaten. My siblings and I always expected to have them rolled and in the freezer when we came for a visit. All we had to do was slice, bake and eat! This is a warm, fuzzy, and tasty memory of growing up in the south!

"Given to me by my mother, this recipe originally appeard in the Farm Journal. These cookies are our favorites and are equally good by themselves or dunked in coffee, milk or tea!"
