    PainterCook's Note:

    This is a basic cream cheese cookie recipe that I added lemon and almond slices to. Keep an eye on them while baking--they are so rich they can burn in a minute. You can use either a 5-pointed star or 6-pointed star as a cookie cutter, depending on your religion. My cookie cutter was about 2 inches wide.
