My mom use to make this recipe growing up, and I always loved when she made these.  I use to love to help her roll them in the cinnamon/sugar mixture.  What a fun thing it was for me to make this now with my own children and let them be the ones to roll them in the cinnamon/sugar, they were delighted.  I love re-living childhood thru my own children, and these cookies were the perfect way to do that.  They are delicious and I hope you can re-live a moment of childhood thru making them as well.
