The Best Cookies Ever

The title doesn't lie. These are literally the best cookies ever. I never tire of making these because they are just so simple, despite there being a lot of ingredients to it. I also never tire or eating these, and I could easily go through an entire batch of these before they've even gone in the oven! I won't, however, take any credit for this recipe, I got the recipe from a friend of mine, and I think it was her grandmother or something who wrote the recipe, and I think that this is one of the few recipes that I haven't changed over time.
Either way, have fun!
