I've been making these for 14 years and I can't even begin to imagine how many more times I will make these. These are DH's favorite cookie. He is seriously addicted to these. In fact, this is only half of what I baked on Thursday morning and I took this picture at 1 P.M. on the same day. I ALWAYS double the batch and have been known to quadruple it. These have been proven to put a twinkle in DH's eye ~ it's one of many ways of telling him that he is loved.
