This is my Grandma's cookie jar that I inherited, or stole according to my sister, but anyway.....Grandma would bake these huge sugar cookies for Tina and I almost everyday. This cookie jar is where she always kept them, so after school we would rush to the cookie jar for one or most of the time two cookies. She never wrote down the recipe and Mama has tried several times to recreate it, but she still hasn't mastered the recipe. As far as we know, it could be the very same, but somehow things just tasted better when you were little. I know you don't belive me, because Grandma passed away 29 years ago, but I promise you, that cookie jar still smells like those cookies!
