This recipe is one that I have made many times. I would make it for my dear friend John who was fighting cancer.
Then I made them for another dear friend whose name was Smithy and the cookies became known as Smithy Cookies.
Both John and Smithy are no longer with us. They are gone but not their memories are not. I remember them when I make this cookie recipe. ❤️
