My wife in the baker in the family. She makes these every year for Christmas. Fair warning this makes about between 8 to 10 dozen depending on how thin you slice the bars. I made an educated guess on the fridge time since she makes these and puts them in the fridge then moves onto the next type of cookie dough.


  1. cream butter and both sugars together.
  2. add eggs.
  3. add dry ingredients.

  7. place wrapped bars on cookie sheet in refridgerator for at least 4 hours to harden for slicing.
  8. Slice bars into 1/4 inch cookie slabs and place on cookie sheet.
