"Yummy little tidbits, a cookie that is dark, lightly sweet, and not heavy tasting. Very yummy!!! I got this recipe from a dear friend back when we graduated from high school and it has become a family favorite. For variety, add chocolate chips or candied fruit."

These were easy to make and a quick study snack, but if I made them again I would definitely use less salt. I found them to be quite salty!

A good & easy crackle top cookie. Moist with a blondie-like texture when warm, a little like a shortbread cookie when cool. Rolling the cookies a little larger or else baking them a minute or ...
