"Very easy to make and the dough was wonderful to work with. Not too sweet. I used 1 tbsp of vanilla instead of 2 tbsp. Made about 3 dozen for me. Great, easy recipe! Thanks Lois!..." See more"

"I have been looking for this recipe for years. I used to make it as a kid. It was in an old cookbook my mom had put out by Crisco I think, dated 1948. But we used maraschino cherry halves. I remember ..." See morethey used to kind of melt in your mouth and the cherry added such a nice chewy touch."
