Bake at 350 degrees 15 to 18 minutes or until light golden color. Cool on rack and then place in airtight container to store. These cookies can be frozen for future use.
This recipe has been a favorite of our family for a long time. It is really easy to make and tastes so good. I hope others enjoy it as much as we do.
