Healing Heart Hint:
The cookies have an old-fashioned soft sugar cookie feel. Adding a ½ t of vanilla extract, various flavorings or any favorite spices can produce unlimted varieties, limited only by your imagination. Try them with a small amount of ginger and/or cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg or other spices.
