Another Recipe from the family archives!  Here is my sister’s version of my mom’s recipe.  This is a family favorite!!!  My mom used to keep them in the freezer.  I remember sneaking in the laundry room and eating one, hoping not to get caught.  Over the years we’ve all shared stories of how we all did the same thing.  Funny how we have such memories around food.  Today, I’ll just lay it out on a platter….eat the cookies.  Everything in moderation and balance!

And why not have cookies for breakfast?  There’s eggs and butter in the recipe…those are breakfast foods right?🤪😂🤣

Enjoy…peace be with you!  🕊
