This cookie recipe is my famous Flat Cookie recipe and it has a story with it. My family and I stayed in a small B&B in Merritt Island and the hostess had baked these incredible cookies. I came back for more like 10 times until she finally offered me the recipe. I never found out the actual name for them and the first time I made them, I used all purpose flour instead of self=rising, so they came out like little pancakes. Thus, they were named Flat Cookies. Once I used the correct flour, they came out great.
The cookies are a mix between a gingerbread, chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, and a sugar cookie. Fair warning though, they may lead to a new addiction. They are so good!
Enjoy the recipe and I hope you all love them.
