“This recipe was given to me by a friend many years ago. It's one of my favorite cookies - they're always a big hit at Christmas. If you make them as directed you get a slightly crunchy cookie. If you want a softer chewier cookie make them a little bigger and bake for only 10 minutes. Cooking time assumes baking 2 sheets (about 32 cookies) at a time.”
