OUR GRANDCHILDREN go through these cookies like locusts in a wheat field! I always tell my husband to try hiding them when the grandkids come, but their little noses find them every time. -Martha Crowe, La Plata, Maryland

"Thank you! I've been making this recipe for years, but lost my recipe box in a motor home crash. So happy to find it again! My sons eat these faster than I can make them!"

"Have made these for yrs. sometimes add finely crushed pecans to powdered sugar and roll in this instead of just powered sugar, adds a little more crunch."

"I have always loved these cookies! I sometimes add a little bit of grated orange rind to the dough for a different flavor. I usually roll them in sifted powdered sugar once the cookies have cooled. I don't always have cake flour and have substituted all-purpose flour with ok results."

"Over all I'd say this is a good recipe. It's moderately quick and the cookies came out nice. After I left it in the fridge for 30 minutes the dough was really sticky. I ended up making them drop cookies instead of rolling them."
