Personal Notes:
These cookies are very addictive! Two very helpful hints--these cookies are best when rolled out thick--I make mine about a 1/4 inch thick, and also cooked so there is NO brown on the bottom. I cook mine for 6 minutes, and then pull them out and let them sit on the hot pan for 1 minute. Friends tell me they taste like bakery cookies.
