        1. Galadrielle, is this Regina's recipe??? I went there from 86-91 and still crave those cookies! They had given us the recipe in Economie Familiale but I lost it when my parents renovated their kitchen and threw it out! If this is that recipe I am eternally grateful to you! Merci beaucoup et joyeuses fetes!
