A few days ago I had the pleasure of enjoying lunch at The Butterhorn Bakery and Cafe in Frisco, CO, www.butterhornbakery.com. Their baked goods are wonderful. After having a wonderful sandwich and soup combo for lunch, I took home a sampling of cookies including Ginger, Oatmeal Raisin, Double Chocolate and White Chocolate Macadamia cookies. Yum!!!
When I returned home, I was in the mood to make cookies. After a walk down memory lane, via my recipe box, I rediscovered a cookie recipe my sister, Carolyn, gave me over 30 years ago. It brings back wonderful memories of Iowa family gatherings. The cookies are chewy and crispy, yet moist. I will not be a stranger to this recipe any longer!
