One sweet story about one sweet cookie!

This recipe was given to me by a very dear friend (thank you my dear Jill Petersen) who shared her secret cookie recipe with me…. many, many years ago. Ever since I made the first batch, it has been a favorite of everyone that has tasted them. They are bite sized treats and friends have been known to eat more than a few in one sitting…they’re that good.  This recipe has certainly stood the test of time (over 30 years) as friends still request them when I’m delegated to desserts at any gathering. Quick tip:  Don’t overbake or overmix and I think you will find that these cookies really do melt in your mouth. Enjoy and thank you Jilly…P.S. We remain the dearest of friends  after all these years. Sweet!
