Personal Notes:
Several people submitted this recipe; here are some notes from a couple of them: (Rebecca) I got this recipe from my mom, Janene Greener. My mom said that this was one of my Grandpa Wright's favorite cookies. He liked them soft because he couldn't eat them hard. They are my favorite cookies and I like them soft as well. (Jennifer) I don't think Grandpa cared for them being rolled in sugar and I don't remember my mom doing that, but I like to.
