There was never a real recipe for this cookie.  Family members begged grandma to give them the recipe, but even Grandma never knew the exact ingredients.  All she knew was a little of this and a little of that.  Family members finally figured out the recipe when they said “Hold on Grandma, we want to measure that before you put in”…so they measured and finally had a one of a kind recipe!  This cookie is like a soft little cake, with creamy icing.  It’s always been our favorite cookie, and always loved by all.
