The Secret’s Out: My Most Requested Cookie Recipe

For years I have been asked by family, friends, neighbors, and even strangers for this cookie recipe. This is one of only three recipes that I have decided to keep to myself all these years, with the exception of a few close family members who were ‘sworn’ to secrecy.

I don’t know exactly what it is about these little cookies that command such attention.
