“This recipe is over 75 documented years old as it has been passed down from generation to generation in my Kentucky family...a real reminder of the warm, comforting cookie a loving mother shares with her children on a cold, wintry day.” - by Levee

"Fair taste, yet these cookies were a tad dry. I liked the idea of an old fashioned recipe, however this was essentially cake, made up into cookies...." See more"
"This was a great old-fashioned tasting cookie! It is definitely cakey, so if you don't care for those kinds of cookies, then this is probably not for you. I added a tablespoon of vanilla and a teaspoo..." See moren of nutmeg and cinnamon to make it more flavorful. I iced it with an orange powdered sugar glaze at the end (3 tablespoons of oj, 1.5 cups of powdered sugar). The dough was not for cutting, so I made these as drop cookies and they formed beautifully. Also, I ended up with a lot more cookies than the recipe called for...so plan on making some for others as well! Everyone will thank you for it!"
