Lea in Blue ApronJuanita Metzger, gave me this recipe when our oldest son, Link, was a baby. She lived across the street from us on Plum Street, in Danville, Illinois. She was also my babysitter for Link when I worked part-time at Montgomery Wards and Larry worked at WDAN Radio.  My, how time flies! Our boys always liked these cookies, and they where one of the varieties I made for Christmas. Today, our grandsons love them, too!
