Party Cookies

Easy and tasty cookies in a jiffy!

This recipe for the cookie was among all the other descriptions that I had saved during the 70:s, and I know that it is more than 40 years since I last baked them, which magazine it was has fallen into oblivion, and unfortunately, I did not make a note of it. Of course, I have changed the recipe and think they are super tasty. I call them party cookies because they are easy and quick to make.
