Just thought I'd share this recipe with all of you.
It originally came from a Wisconsin Electric power Co. cookbook I received when I used to work for the Wis. Natural Gas Co. (back in the olden days when there WAS a WI nat. Gas Co. - I'm really showing my age here).
The recipe is probably 40 years old.
I guarantee you will be a hit with these cookies.
Enjoy making them and sharing them and eating them!
Merry Christmas, everybody!
