my all time favorite cookies, Member anisSP

My mom had been making these cookies since the 60ties. All I could remember she'd made them every Muslim Eids. I do not know where she got the recipe..but then we had always been using KELLOG'S cornflakes. Even today the cookies had been the family's favorite..we call it 'Cheri Makenoon'
