To tell the truth, I can't recall where this recipe came from. It's been a regular in my holiday baking, though, for many years. Between Thanksgiving and New Year's, I hand these out to almost everybody—even the mailman's been known to find a batch in the mailbox! I moved from a big city as a bride. My husband soon persuaded me to enter baked goods at our county fair—now, our son, 8, is my cookie tester, and our daughter, 6, is the egg beater.
