    These were the best cookies I have EVER had! Now, I grew up with my mama's country cooking straight out of Alabama, but man, these cookies were something else! I love them so much, I wrote it down on a little post-card, because usually, I don't use these weird internet recipes. Now, this was a total exception. You Swiss people are on to something! God bless you all!
