Today’s cookie is a favorite of Dear Husband and is one of his mother’s recipes. The dough needs to be refrigerated before baking, so I mixed them yesterday making for minimal mess today. Dear Husband was enjoying a day off today and taking advantage of “dough nibbling” along with the fresh, hot cookies coming out of the oven.
