I have made this recipe for years.
I originally got it from a co-worker named Shauna and it has always been a favorite of mine.
The cookies are thin, crispy, crunchy and a little bit salty. They are not fancy but they sure are good!
Hope they become a favorite of yours!
I just retired from 45 years of critical care nursing.
I worked with a great group of people and have decided to take them baked goods on a regular basis, so tomorrow I will deliver these to the staff of the ICU.
