    Jane from Ohio's Note:

    This is another old recipe of my mothers. It's at least 50 years old or more. I don't know where she got it but it is very good and buttery.I am going to guess on the amount of cookies it makes. I know it makes a lot. They also freezes well.

      These are wonderful light and buttery cookies. I borrowed my best friend's cookie press and made pressed cookies for the holidays. Be prepared, this recipe really makes a lot of cookies.

      This was only the second time that I had used my cookie press. The dough was to stiff and I used 1 tablespoon of water in order to get it to the proper consistency. This made a lot more than 100 cookies. I actually lost count. They are in the freezer and will be a great addition to my cookie trays this holiday.

      I am so sorry that it has taken me so long to post this recipe - - I must say that this recipe is fantastic. I got extremely creative with this and put it into a fluted cookie silicone pan. Baked for 10 minutes and topped with apricot jam and sliced almonds. Put back in the oven for approximately 8 more minutes until the almonds toasted. Deeeeee-Lish!!!
