“This is my Aunt Dorothy's recipe. She would always serve these melt-in-your-mouth,unbelieveable tasting cookies. Aunt Dot, also my Godmother, always made hers with peach preserves, as do I. They are easy to do and prep time includes chilling. My original copy is in pretty bad shape, so I wanted to post here for safe keeping, and even though she is gone now, I know she would be thrilled I posted her recipe for all to enjoy.”
