I have found this type of cookie is one that folks either love or hate. My grandmother, who was German, made these for my dad. She lived in Michigan and would always ship them to us in Georgia every Chrismas. When I was about 12, she taught me how to make them and gave me her recipe. She died about ten years ago and since then, I've been the one to make these cookies. Today, Christmas Eve, 2002, I went to bake the cookies for my Dad, and found the recipe had been torn out of my book and is gone. It was such a relief to find this recipe here. This is her exact recipe, except she didn't use nutmeg. This recipe is a wonderful recipe and the moister the batter, the better the cookie. Also, you CANNOT over-cook this cookie. If you do, you lose the entire flavor. So, bake for exactly the amount of time alloted, or a little less. Thanks so much!
