Grandma Cookies

The recipe in the church cookbook says Grandmother Cookies, but we always called them Grandma Cookies. My mother made these cookies, just like her mother did before her, and I have no idea where the recipe came from before that. They’re just a little different from any other cookies I’ve ever had, probably because of the nutmeg sugar, and I love them with a cup of tea. Daddy loved these and always wanted Mother to make sure they got really done. He didn’t like it if they were even a little bit gooey. (The recipe above this one for Nut Crescents is really good, too!)
