These are very tasty and pretty too. Unfortunately my rolling went a little awry so the there's less swirl and more splodge ;-). I halved the recipe but still used a whole egg yolk. The mixture seemed really dry so I added the white as well which sorted out the consistency. Thanks!

Made these for a Easter Tea party I had with my two granddaughters. The pink swirl made a pretty butter cookie. They went very nice with our tea. Thanks Sam#3. Bullwinkle.
