    I have made these since I was a teenager. They are always a favorite. I recommend doubling or tripling the recipe. My sister and my dad used to fight about whose cookie tin had more than the other--they were always exactly the same because I counted them.

    Try making them with pecans--they are great too.

    They freeze well (as long as my sister does not know that they are there).
