These yummy cookies are a family favorite:
the kids get to make and consume them at Grandma's house.
(She is an amazing cook!)
And then she gives us plenty of them to take home!! We are very lucky.... :)
for years and years and no longer remembers where she got it,
so we will just give her the credit for it, OK?
we will not make any claims that they are healthy.
She actually makes them with coconut oil instead of shortening,
hoping that helps a little bit on the health scale....
I will add those instructions at the bottom.
