I grew up on a farm where we hand-milked cows and had plenty of milk and cream to use for cooking. Sometimes we'd substitute light cream for the evaporated milk in this recipe. We'd rarely let these cookies cool before sampling them, and a batch never lasted a day! —Denise Marnell, Hereford, Texas

"I love having a cookie recipe that isn't a traditional sweet cookie. Especially at breakfast time. Having these out for coffee with the girls makes for something a little unique. They were a big hit!"
