I can't remember where I found this..I think online somewhere..It's a tender, flakey treat...I'm saving it here so I can make them this year. They look a ltttle different, not a typical round or bar cookie, a long slender twist cookie.

I made these today and they were very good and very easy to make. I did have some problems with the bake time. I put them in for 15 minutes and it was really too long as a couple of them were on the verge of burning. Next time, I would really watch them starting at about 12 minutes or so. Except for that, I had no other problems. I plan to make these again for Christmas. Thanks for posting!!
