I cut out this recipe from the December 19,1978 Woman's Day Magazine. I seem to remember cutting the finished cookies on the diagonal, making triangle shapes. Whatever shape you cut them, they are delicious for all you nutmeg lovers.

A dense, rich shortbread with intense nutmeg flavor and a glossy golden crust. These are definitely a keeper!
