Marlene got this recipe from her brother-in-law Mark's mom and nobody who has tried them hasn't liked them. When I asked her for the recipe, she did one better. She brought a batch with her when she came to visit. This batch was rolled, cut and decorated and super cute! They are softer than a regular sugar cookie and I find them a little harder to roll, but they take well to shapes. Jax needed something to bring for Valentine's Day at daycare. He also needed a treat to bring his betrothed! So, I thought this would be a perfect time to make these cookies.
