Recipe by Lvs2Cook

I have been making these cookies for years. I don't remember where I got the recipe from originally but it's a Christmas cookie tray staple in our house. It's my son's favorite and he has been known to eat the whole batch at one sitting!

What a pretty little cookie! I made these as directed except for the nutmeg, I'm not crazy about nutmeg. I am so glad I tried these! I rolled the finished cookie in a powdered sugar/cinnamon mixute and they were a hit! Thanks for sharing!
