Amish Cookies

Last Wednesday night, bur church had it's usual soup, sandwich, and a few desserts dinner before singing began....and someone had made the most wonderful cookies...I love a sweet cookie, like shortbread cookies, and no frosting, so I started hunting down the recipe of the cookie maker. It turned out to be Wilma Lawrence. She has some of the most wonderful recipes anyway....from TX Caviar to Sugared Peanuts. So today, she met me at the church door and handed me the recipe....and so I am sharing it and making them this week.....Thank you, Wilma, for your generosity of sharing these wonderful recipes...
