Got this recipe a few years ago from an American pen friend, in the days before computers!!

Tasty, especially with a powdered-sugar icing. I doubled the recipe but only added 4 cups (instead of 5) of flour. The cookies were still a little floury, even. I also used a couple squirts of lemon juice instead and orange and it worked just great.
