Why I Love This Recipe

Paulette Sohrabi - 1996 From Anderson Family Cookbook - Our Mother made the world's greatest cookies. When this Anderson recipe book was first mentioned, I think we all immediately thought of these Powdered Sugar Cookies. All of us kids remember coming home from school to the wonderful cookie aroma, knowing you would see the dining room table covered with rows and rows of cookies on top of newspaper. These Powdered Sugar Cookies were her best - a very delicate, melt-in-your-mouth treat! The Stumpf Kids
