Personal Notes:
This is my grandmother's recipe which I found in my mother's handwritten recipe cards with a little note saying "Eva" (my grandmother's name, Eva Wachtel). I took the liberty of adding the directions (all I had was a list of ingredients) and a bit of vanilla. Of course all the ingredients list said was 'sugar', I also added 'superfine' as that's what I like to use in my own cookie recipes.
