Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
The title is copied from Grandma's own handwriting. I believe that Grandpa made the comment that these cookies were the best filled cookies he ever ate. I agree with him - they are scrumptious. There are other versions of this recipe in this book because it was and still is a family favorite and is still prepared every holiday season.
