Our mom has a little blue recipe binder. She has had it for years and years...and years! Over the years she has collected recipes from friends, magazines, cookbooks, etc. All the BEST recipes would go into this little blue binder. The binder is pretty worn but the recipes are certainly timeless. This cookie is exceptionally delicious.
This is what we found in the blue binder...
