This is my grandmother’s recipe for refrigerator crisps. I never understand why she called them that, but I loved to help her make them. I think I asked her every time we made them where they got that name from and she gave me a different answer each time. I think she loved coming up with a funny story each time. I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as I do. Happy eating.
