"I've never made cookies like this, but when I found this recipe in the 1954 Settlement Cookbook my mom gave me when I went I got my first apartment, I decided I need to give it a try. This looks like a great substitute for buying grocery rolled dough and cooking slices. The book just says it makes a large quantity...so I'm guessing at the yield. Refrigerator time not included in prep or cook time."
