Personal Notes:
Jackie first received this recipe from Brownies on January 17, 1966. I actually have the original recipe in my 8 year old hand writing. Mom and I made these buttery creations every Christmas thereafter. I also have subsequent years of recipe perfectionism written on the back of the original recipe through 1978 (Imagine that!!!). Of course, I would eat lots of dough before I would cook them. I wonder if that is where Nick gets his love for raw cookie dough. Hey Nick, there is no eggs in this recipe so we can eat all the dough we want...Yum!!!
This was a great idea Kevy!!!
