These cookies are absolutely to die for! I have tried alot of good and excellent cookies before but I can't even describe the sensation these gave my mouth. INCREDIBLE!!!! Thank you so much for dragging this recipe card out to share with everyone. I did however make a few changes only because I don't keep lard in my house. I used 2 cups of margarine instead of 1 cup of margarine and 1 cup of lard. I cooked them for 12 minutes instead of 20. My children went nuts for them.


Making cookies for upcoming wedding. This was simple and excellent. Made one batch today am making second batch tomorrow. Need more like this one!


I made this and it was SooOOOooo good. My kids helped me roll the dough into balls, and in the sugar, and we had a great time. Also, these cookies keep very well in the freezer. If you are thinking about substituting margarine for the butter that is called for in this recipe, DON'T. I tried making these for my sister in-law that has a milk alergy, but the turned out terribly when margarine was used (twice).
