    Juenessa's Note:

    These are easy to make and taste delicious. I liken them to a shortbread cookie. If you chill the dough for just a bit in the frig, it's much easier to handle.

      I make these every Christmas and my family and co-workers love them!

      @Marianneee - You don't have to omit the alcohol! Just buy an airplane bottle of Chambord--that's what I do, and it's enough for three batches of cookies.

      These are addicting! I omitted the alcohol because I didn't want to buy a bottle for 1 TB. These cookies were so amazing I might try the alcohol after all just in case they are even better.
