Whenever Mother made these cookies, there never seemed to be enough! Even now when I make them, they disappear quickly. These melt-in-your mouth treats are great with a cold glass of milk or a steaming mug of hot chocolate. —Debbie Carlson, San Diego, California

They were ok. A little too dry for my liking and not very much flavor. They were super easy though and indeed staples in my kitchen as another reviewer said.
