  1. Yummm….. Perfect for those days when it’s too hot to turn the oven on but you need a little something sweet.

  2. My Mom made these all the time for us kids – and we LOVED them! I remember the first time I tried to make them (her recipe is the same as yours). I was newly married and wanted to make these for my husband. We didn’t have real butter, so I had to use margarine. I can tell you from experience, the margarine just didn’t work! The cookies never “hardened” and the mushy mess tasted nothing like Mom’s. Lesson learned. I only use real butter now. I should make a batch of these for the holiday weekend…. yum! Thanks for sharing!
