I really should be getting caught up on two months of book work and a budget for District 3 Farm Bureau, but I think I will start my working day by sharing the cookies and try to catch you all up on the rest of it in the next few days!
I'm going to cheat for the sake of time and post a pic of the recipe from the family cookbook. Hope it fits my blog page ok! Eh...good enough! Oops! Have to change the ages on the kids in my About Me section!
*On Step 4, it says to "sift soda" Scratch that and write in baking powder.
Did you see the first step? "Work shortening (I used butter!) with a SPOON!" Dang! Well, if that's what Grandma said to do, then I was never one to disobey her, especially in the kitchen!

Dipping the glass.
Smooshing the cookie dough.
Ready to go in the oven.
Ready to go in the bags!
I somehow forgot to take a picture of them all nicely bagged up in the pretty Christmas bags. Probably because I had to race out and help temp 40 of the calves. But that is a story for another day.
I had best get back to my neglected work before the boss man realizes I am blogging instead of adding and subtracting. :-P on numbers! ;-)
