Why I Love This Recipe
I love this cookie! It's my favorite and no one makes it like mom. The velvety cookie and the sweet powdered sugar makes this cookie a real treat.
It's not my recipe, it's pretty well known, but I wanted to add it anyway.
This particular recipe was from "Taste Of Home" magazine.
