Personal Notes:
Cookies made by my mother, Grandma Morgan who was taught by her mother. I made these cookies every year for my two children who also learned and now I make them with Jack and Emily . Most kids love the cookie dough so be prepared for a minor stomach ache. Great cookies to dunk in milk or coffee.
