“A friend shared a taste of this cookie with me and it is yummy. She told me that as a young girl her Daddy would take her into town and her treat was to stop at a local bakery to get a cookie like this. She hadn't tasted them in 40 or so years and low and behold a neighbor just happened to have the recipe!!! They really are good!”
