I know you guys are overcome with jealousy that I got to grow up with a baker such as my mom in the kitchen. It’s part of the reason I didn’t learn to cook until I was 30. Why would I learn to cook when there was a lady making cookies like this on the regular for me?! I was spoiled with the absolute best cooking on the planet growing up, and these cookies are just the tip of the iceberg. Thanks Mom for sharing your secrets with us all :)
