Personal Notes:
I was given this recipe from my dear friend Joni Haugse who moved overseas and is now settled in San Antonio, TX. She moved away before we started having our annual Christmas Cookie Exchanges. Some of my dearest memories are still of us cooking, baking and sharing some wonderful meals together.

My family loves these cookies and often we don't have many to store after I bake them.
