I will be honest, the recipe that I make the best is from The Better Homes And Gardens Cookbook. I love that cookbook by the way. I have grown a following of one, my brother in law - Martin (a lot of other people like what I make as well). He loves them. It it now a joke between the two of us, as to how I am his dealer. I deal in "contraban food items".
Over the years, I have looked for ways to make them healthier. I have tried gluten free - for my sister. I have tried low cholesterol, by using apple sauce instead of crisco - for my Dad. Every time I am kindly, but sternly told to quit messing them up. Apparently it is just not the same.
I always make him up about three dozen for Christmas. I am trying to cut down on the amount of time I spend in the kitchen, this year I might give them to him as frozen dough. Have I mentioned that I love these cookies too, they are so yummy. I always add a bit more cinnamon, they can't have too much.
