Question by Josie: Have you herd of the “Great American Recipes” cards?
Many years ago I purchased the “Great American Recipes” cards, and thier was a great cookie recipe there. They were lemon sugar cookies, and they were SOOOOO good. The problem is that I lost that card, and would realy like to make them again. As much as I hate baking from scratch, these cookies are worth it. Does any one have that recipe?
