Personal Notes:
These cookies are also known in my family as Whop-It cookies. The recipe came from my mother who when taking these cookies out of the oven she would "Whop" the tray on the stove top to help the cookies crinkle. A young cousin of mine started calling these cookies "Whop-It Cookies" and the name stuck.
