Every year at Christmas, I go into "cookie baking mode". I have several recipes that I like to make during that time of year only, and this is one of them. Last year, I found a "mitten" cookie cutter and made this as gifts and one friend said, "oh.........man......! This isn't just a great cookie.......this is THE BEST COOKIE I HAVE EVER EATEN IN MY LIFE". What a compliment!! If only this recipe were my own creation, I would feel great about taking the kudos. I have no idea where I got this recipe, but since I've had it for so long, I am going to assume it came from either Betty Crocker, or one of my mom's church fundraiser cookbooks. It doesn't matter though, because my friend was right. This probably is my all time favorite cookie because it is so delicious.
You can see by this picture that my decorating skills are lacking. That's ok with me....nobody complained....they were too busy enjoying the cookies!
