Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This was the only cookie that Grandma Hofstra ever baked. She didn't have to do much baking because Grandpa Hofstra was Hofstra's Bakery and it's pretty hard to beat a Hofstra's Santa Claus cookie or Coconut cookie or Chicago Girl cookie. Just a few of Grandpa's specialties.Not to mention Hofstra's Raisin bread or Banket or even Holland Rye bread was so yummy!!
