I just finished making Grandma's cookies. They are wonderful!

I think they sound delicious. However I get tired of reading peoples petty complaints about a recipe when I would prefer to read their opinions of how it tastes. If you don't like a recipe, just don't make it!

It amazes me that in an email labeled "No Bake" more than half of the recipes need to be baked. Great Job.
