This recipe belonged to my grandma and was passed down to me. They are very soft and sweet. It is one of my favorite cookie recipes. The cookies are usually gone in minutes.

  4. I will make it again love it and no changes were made

  6. They look like puddles

  9. Recipe is simple. Cookies are soft with crunchy edges. 2teaspoons of salt is too much I will change it to 1 teaspoon next time to cut the salty taste (especially when dipped in milk)
