Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Uncle Jeff had a good friend that he spent a lot of time with. When they would be at his friend’s house, his friend’s Mom always made these cookies. Jeff liked the cookies so much that he had Grandma call her (Aunt Verla thinks her name was Mrs. Wagler) to get the recipe.

Grandma then started making the soft Amish Sugar cookies for Uncle Jeff and then her Grandchildren. I know she always would make them for special occasions like Christmas and even mailed them to Tracey & Brian when they were young since they lived out of state.
