From my Mother-In-Law My mother-in-law loves to cook and bake. The first time she came for an extended visit (she lives in California, and we were in Maryland), she brought along a few of her favorite recipes on 3x5 cards to make while she was there. She left the recipe cards with us, so I could add them to my recipe collection. Well, it's years and years later, and we are still making these cookies. They are fun to make if you have small children who like to help in the kitchen, and they are delicious! March 11, 2013
