Personal Notes:
I copied this one from Mom's recipe box when I was in college. She was really a recipe collector. She had so many recipes that I don't ever remember her making - including this one. But I have made it many times, and it's a keeper. These cookies are really soft and kind of like cake. I use an ice cream scoop instead of a tablespoon, to keep them similar in size.
