YUMMMMY!!!!!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I was searching for something different and this recipe fit the bill! I used 1/2 shortening and 1/2 butter as I usually don't have luck with recipes with all butter. These cookies were light and delicate and simply wonderful. Thank you for sharing!!!!

These were great! I have always gotten these from a bakery at Christmas time. This was my first time making them and they turned out great! I may try a bit of baking powder next time to help them stand up a bit, but the taste was wonderful! Thanks!
