This recipe is almost identical to my Grandmother's recipe. She always added in 1/4 cup chopped pecans and 1/2 cup coconut. My grandma always had them stored in her refrigerator ready to bake for when people dropped by. You will love this cookie!!! Debbie

I was in a hurry to get these made and didn't have time to wait for them to firm in the fridge, so I placed them in the freezer for 20 mins. They were plenty firm and ready to bake!

I divided the dough in half and added red food coloring to half and made pinwheel cookies with it- very good!!

Wow... these are really easy and you just can't quit eating them... my family loves them. Sometimes I don't even wait for them to chill & just drop them... they are good that way too.

Perfect! I have been looking for an easy, delicious sugar cookie recipe. One that doesn't necessitate rolling out the dough and cutting the cookies with a cutter. I have found it, these really do melt in your mouth. Next I will try the other reviewers suggestion and add pecans. Yummy! Thanks Martha

I love these cookies - they are great dunkers for milk or coffee. One of my childhood friend's mother used to make these for us after school - now I know why. It's so convenient to have these waiting on you in the fridge for whenever you are ready. Thanks for the recipe!
