    BecR's Note:

    These cookies truly say 'Christmas' to me, and they are a family favorite at holiday time! The dried currants, cinnamon, lemon, walnuts, butter, and dusting of powdered sugar make an absolutely delicious tasting cookie. They freeze well too. Recipe is from my dear father, who was a spectacular baker. From my family to yours...I hope you enjoy!
