"Terrific Old Fashion Recipie! Ok...first I want to say that the last person who left a review for this said they barely got 3 doz out of it and that it was messy...I am wondering if you maybe covered..." See more it while it was cooking?...leaving it to sticky. Also how big of balls did you make? I made balls the size of large marbles and I got around 6 dozen...also my dough was not messy at all...I had to press it to make it stick together into balls (once pressed they stayed formed very well...not crumbly at all) Anyway...I just made these and they are very good and very christmasy :) I must say though, that when I took the "dough" out of the oven I was suprised at the consistancy. It was a dry "casserole" (looked like dressing) that I wasn't expecting. Better words could be used in the directions to save confusion. (the directions say to beat well with a wooden spoon...it should say to break up or loosen) I almost discarded it but I took my wooden spoon and "beat" it as best I could. (I just stired and got it all loosened and broken up) As long as you aren't thinking of typical cookie dough you'll be ok. After the mixture cooled I pressed the dough into balls and rolled them in sugar assembly line style. It was very easy but a bit time consuming...they are good though...and very Grandma-ish :) thanks for sharing Peggy!"
"Peggy, thank you for posting this recipe. I've been looking for it for years. Folks this is a wonderful holiday cookie. I top mine off with half a candied cherry to make them look festive...." See more"
"I would make these again. They're pretty good for the little effort required. Dough was crusty on the outside and gooey on the inside when it came out of the oven, but it all stirred together to for..." See morem a sort of crumbly mixture. It is certainly easier to roll into balls if you wait until the dough is completely cool. I had a sticky mess when I started too soon and found it much easier when I followed the directions and waited for it to cool."
