“My DH told me a story about cookies that his Mom and Grandma used to make.... they don't really have a name, he calls them "Grandma" cookies! His Grandma called them Sweet Milk Cookies. Either way, they are just delicious. I have no idea where this recipe is from as DH had it scribbled on a piece of paper. Recipe is from about the 1930's to 1940's. **These are best when frosted.”
