Personal Notes:
This recipe is from a 1978 Damariscotta, Maine cookbook. I used to make these all the time when Danny was little. I need to make them again. They are such great sugar cookies, with a very unique taste. They are great rolled out thicker, so they're a little chewy, or rolled out on the thin side, and then they're crispy. I am not consistent when I roll cookies out so I usually have a mixture of chewy and crispy cookies. I sprinkle different colored sugars on top. Great for Christmas.
