100 Good Cookies
Posted for :contest COOKIES
I got this recipe from DH's grandmother. I have no idea how it got the title 100 good cookies. I once took a plate of these to a man who had terminal throat cancer. He asked his wife to request that I make more of them for him as it was all that tasted good to him in his final days. I gladly took him an ice cream pail full. He wrote me the nicest thank you. A few weeks later he went home to heaven.
