My sweetie has a sweet tooth attached to his puppy-dog eye look. It gets him after dinner and gets me just when I'm thinking of heading to bed. Baking says "I Love You." It fills the cookie jar and makes for brag-able "happy" lunches. You got to spoil then somehow, so when the need arises, you can hold it over them. Chuckle chuckle! My father's favorite cookie. Not sure where the recipe originates from, been around the Richards/Wambach household since my childhood and now to spoil my husband. My mom presses them thin with a sugared glass because Dad likes the crisp edges. Me? Don's preference is more towards shortbread, so I leave them a bit thicker on the press. During the holidays you can sprinkle with festive color, dip them in white chocolate. They are a quick "Git R Done" cookie.
Prepare: Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees
