    Granddad used a cookie press to make these cookies, which is why I have never tried to make them, I have yet to find a cookie press that likes me!
    I remember Noreen, Lori, and I loved going to Granddad’s house during the holidays because we always knew there would be some of these cookies waiting for us. They are so good!
