Gatherings are very important to my family, so we have lots of recipes that are favorites. My grandma introduced these cookies into the family a long time ago. The memory of her and these cookies go together!

Not a bad recipe, buttermilk added a tang. However, need a ton of sugar/cinnamon. Instead I used a burned butter frosting, giving it a nutty flavor. Would not make this cookie without some kind of frosting to give the cookies a needed "zip".

These cookies were easy to make and very tasty. We omitted the ground cinnamon sugar but drizzled icing on top after they were baked. They were chewy and soft. Very good!
