Personal Notes:
When I was in school Mother and Gwen Burgess carpooled us and her 2 daughters and in the afternoon when we'd take Dianne and Glenda to their house, Mrs. Burgess would have these cookies for us! Such a treat! We'd eat cookies and play while they had coffee. She gave me this recipe when I married, she also had my bridal tea... I've made them all these years and my grands LOVE THEM:)
