Aunt Eva always had coffee and sugar cookies. Mostly she would roll the cookies and sprinkle them with a little granulated sugar. However, she would occasionally make a drop sugar cookie. I thought it sounded simpler to make and she shared the recipe. This was in 1978. Fellowship meeting was at Eva's and after meeting there was always a plate of sugar cookies for anyone who wanted a cookie.
