From my mother-in-law Libby. I think this is the one she made. Detective work is hard, lol. They said these would melt in your mouth.

These are delicious! I've been using this recipe for years and even tho they're a bit time consuming, the end result is so very worth it! These delicate little cookies melt in your mouth and are a great recipe for something special! Nice to see it posted here in case I ever lose my cookbook! :) Thank you!

I have been making these cookies for over 30 years - they are light and delicate. Great with a cup of tea in the afternoon - I like to fill mine with cream cheese frosting flavored with almond instead of vanilla. Yum! At Christmas I tint the wafers with red and/or green and leave the filling white. Very pretty!
