Family tradition

I make these every year, ever since I got the recipe from an Ocean Spray pamphlet. Everyone loves them, I even won a Christmas Cookie contest with them. I always give the recipe out.

I have made these cookies since I first got it in an Ocean Spray pamphlet. There a great cookie, not too sweet. I also use white chocolate instead of the semi-sweet. Everyone seems to like them.
