“I received this recipe years ago from a woman in one of my education classes. Since then I have been making them every year for my Christmas cookies plate. Note: If made as follows, expect a very thin crispy cookie. I usually add 1/3 cup of flour to make the cookies a little chewier. Either way, they taste great!!!!!”
