This is a Germanic holiday butter cookie with just a bit of sweetness. Believe me you will be running back for more. My daughter’s first grade class ate over four dozen of these at a winter break party. It is very simple and simply delicious.

Sometimes the simplest things will go over great, & I expect these will, too, when I include them in a cookie sale (along with other cookies & bars) during a park-wide garage sale here! It also gives me a chance to test they out as potential 'holiday gifts!' I think these will do just fine! Thanks for sharing!
