About this Recipe:

I received this recipe from my mother-in-law who has been using it for a really long, long time! Bake on the shorter side of the time for irresitably soft cookies or the longer side for crunchy cookies. TIP: Use a melon baller for perfectly uniform cookies. People will acuse you of buying them from the bakery!
