I can remember when I was a little girl at my grandparents house, and my grandma would be in the kitchen making these cookies. To me they always looked a little funny from my child view. I would always try to sneak a taste before they were ever done and my grandpa would have to always tell me “No, no Bailey, they are not ready to eat yet!” I just couldn’t wait, I wanted to eat one right then. As I got older my grandma taught me how to make these and now I’m sharing it with all of you.
These cookies are simple to make, with only one hard part ~ to let them cool completely before you can eat one. If you are going to serve them at a party or event I recommended making them the night before, that way they will be ready in time.
Kids will love helping with these cookies, just be careful because the mixture gets very hot.
