Danish Cookies (Press Cookies)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Jane from Ohio

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.
