Mrs. Schnetsler Christmas Roll Cookies

Total Time

Every year before Christmas, my mom and I bake a tin of cookies for each of her sibling's families, our family friends, etc. We use my great-great grandmother's recipes; before she died, she asked my mother to carry on her Christmas cookie-baking tradition. This is one of the cookies we make every year, and my absolute favorite of the lot. I have no idea who Mrs. Schnetsler is, but if she had anything to do with these cookies, she must be great! :) Cook time does not include overnight chill time.
