These cookies are now a Christmas tradition. I like to a small amount of salt to the dough.

These cookies were great! I made them with no-sugar-added ice cream and preserves and they came out perfectly - thanks for posting this recipe!

I have searched for this recipe for many years. Thank you! These cookies just melt in your mouth. I made these about 30 years ago and never tasted any thing better since! Until now that is.
