This comes from the December 2007 edition of Better Homes & Gardens. I have not tried these but looks like a great addition to a cookie tray. Store in an airtight container in layers separated by waxed paper at room temperature for up to 3 days. May freeze up to 3 months. Makes 240 tiny cookies according to the directions. Chill time included in prep time.****OOPS**** Thanks to the first reviewer I corrected the recipe to include the egg. So sorry!

I was a little confused about the steps. After steps 1 and 2 there was nothing on what to do with the egg. or even to mix it all together. So I had to look up the recipe on the internet to see what to do with the egg. But after I did that, the cookies are very easy to make. Great tasting. I was done so fast. I love the powder sugar on them. Its a fast delicious cookie to make. I truely loved these. Very easy and quick to make. i will be making these again
