Kitchen Korner - Cookies

These cookies are just called, COOKIES.  At home I refer to them as "Funeral Cookies."  Ken calls them "Jim-Dandies."  There's a reason for all three names.  First of all, Agnes Andrew gave me the recipe and she just had "Cookies" at the top of the recipe card.  I call them "Funeral Cookies" because that's where the recipe came from in the first place.  Ken calls them "Jim-Dandies" because Jim Andrew was the one who got the recipe from some person at the funeral home.  Are you confused yet?  I know I am.

However, Jim and Agnes served these cookies to us one day, along with a bunch of other goodies, and we found them very delightful.  Ken bragged and went on so about them until Agnes obviously felt sorry for him and sent a little bag of them home with us, (which Ken devoured in no time).

            Nothing doing, but Ken insisted I get the recipe.  I did and now I'm sharing it with you.  (You can name them whatever you want.)  The name "Jim-Dandies" has a good ring to it, don't you think?

2 Eggs
