Easy, never-fails, and everyone loves them. For the sugar dipping I use turbinado [raw] sugar for added crunch and interest.

I cut this recipe off of my butter box in Dec. When I baked my first batch, the cookies looked and tasted just like the ones my grandmother gave us back in the 1940's. She had a wood stove and baked the most wonderful cookies, pies and cakes. Thank you for the memory. The bonus was how wonderful the cookies are. They will be a regular from now on.
