These cookies are absolutely delicious. I've been making them for years. Definitely do as Amber suggests, and make these as refrigerator cookies, that is make logs, chill, then slice. So much easier than rolling out. Also, before baking, prick each cookie several times with a fork to prevent them from puffing up. Bake only until set, but not brown.
These are so delicious. My family loved them so much I had to hide them!! I'm a lazy cook so rather than roll out the dough I just refrigerated it in a log that measured about 1 1/2 inches and then cut the cookies off in slices. What a wonderful dough and they sliced up so easily.
