“Easy and quick not to mention delicious! I needed to make a lot of cookies in a short amount of time for a local bake sale. I found this recipe in my grandmother's recipe box. So simple but so good. You can make dough ahead of time and freeze it. Defrost when ready to use and follow baking instructions. Great cookie for the holidays.”
