Recipe by Baseball Mom 5

These are a family favorite made by our Great Grandma Irene. Since her passing, I have tried my best to carry on the tradition of making these and think it is only appropriate to share her recipe so a great piece of her will live on. Don't be intimitated by the prep time. That includes the chilling of the dough.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 lb butter (NO margarine)
  • 1 lb cream cheese
  • 2 egg yolks

  1. Sift flour and sugar together.
  2. Work in butter, cream cheese and egg yolks.
  3. Knead well.
