This cookie has always been a family favorite. My mother, Vina, made these often when I was a kid, and she made them almost every time I came home to visit. My wife, Nancy, makes these now. When Mom was in the nursing home, Nancy would mail her a batch from time to time. She wrapped the cookies individually in wax paper so they would travel well. Mom got a kick out of that and she enjoyed Nancy's cookies very much. Bud makes these too, but (nothing personal Bud) Nancy's are better. Just like Mom used to make.
