“My MIL got these from her student assistant years ago and we have been making them ever since! My husband and I fight over them when she would send them to us in a care package when we didn't make it home for the holidays. Now I make them as well and we still fight over them! I bake them on my baking stones which makes them softer. If using a metal cookie sheet they will be harder.”
