You know who gave me this recipe? My Dear Late Granny’s mailwoman, that’s who. I can tell it’s my grandma’s recipe cuz it calls for Powder Sugar (not “powdered sugar”) and cuz she shouts “DON’T OVER BAKE” at me, even from beyond the grave. I love her so.

You should probably serve these with ice tea, made the “right” way — pounds of sugar melted into it while tea is still hot, then ice it down.

Bon appetit!

    Would these be good without nuts? Max won’t eat nuts in cookies…
