Connie states--These are the "BEST" cookies... and a must for all Christmas holidays. My Mom always had these in the house at Christmas. Only Mom could make them oh so good!

Brenda says--Whenever we would come into Mom's kitchen, all the kids would be searching the cupboards for these favorites, which were sometimes gone because Brent found them first!!!
