Sharon and Gerald Rohn from Good Shepard Lutheran Directory

Sharon Kay (Reed) Rohn was born on June 11, 1945 to Robert and Gladys (Barsczewski) Reed in Saginaw, Michigan. Sharon married Gerald R. Rohn on October 26, 1963, and they had three daughters. Sharon was a beautician and also worked at several gift, craft, and floral shops in the area. She was also a member of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.

The cookies were pretty simple to make with a sweet and salty taste. Baked for the full 12 minutes, the cookies came out of the oven lightly browned with a soft and chewy center.
