Personal Notes:
This recipe was given to me by a college friend, Colleen Curtin Gable. She made them in college and then baked them and mailed them to me for my 24th birthday. Steve proposed that day and we munched on them as we talked plans for the wedding. We refer to them as "engagement cookies".
