Notes

My Grandma would make these cookies every year. These are my fav (and the most fatty cookie too) I finally got the recipe from an aunt. It was pretty hard to find old fashioned clothespins any more, since they make the clippy ones. The cookie outside is flaky and the inside is creamy. They take a long time to make but they are worth it. Enjoy.
