Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
You may want to half this recipe. It makes about 8 dozen cookies. I don't think my Grandma Cunningham ever halved it, because us grandkids loved these cookies so much. She stored the cookies in her used Folgers Coffee cans and always had a stash in the freezer in her garage.
