These cookies are melt in your mouth delicious. They are different from anything else I have ever made. They are so buttery. I have been making these for 19 years and they are the ones my family always request at the holidays. The recipe was found in a cookbook from Christian Academy School my son attended when he was young. The book said it is the same cookies that they make at the famous Peabody Hotel, hence the name.

Wonderful, melt-in-your mouth is so right!! These are wonderful, and easy, as they are rolled..I waited for 2 days before I sliced and baked them, because I was sick, but the results were the same...fantastic recipe. Thank you for sharing, Baby!!
