"This is a nice cookie to have on hand in the refrigerator for when company comes or you need a batch of cookies for school lunches. I also like to keep logs of the unbaked cookie dough in the freezer, to take out and thaw and use as needed. My grandmother used to make a similar cookie, and I have found this recipe to be very close to what she made. It isn't super-fancy or over-the-top, but it's a nice and flavorful cookie to have on hand."

"Absolutely wonderful. Just like my Mother used to make when I was a child 70+ years ago. For a change I used a thin powdered sugar glaze over the top and sprinkled with "raw" sugar for a Christmas look. YUMMMMMM"
