    Shar-on's Note:

    Yes, these are safe to eat. These are a lovely white soft cookie with a thin coating of icing. I can remember my Grandmother making these at Christmas with pink or mint green icing. Sad to say, I did not get her recipe. These cookies are enjoyed in many Mennonite homes with the recipe past from generation to generation. This recipe is one I got from a friend in Winnipeg which I found to be similar. The preparation time is only the time in mixing the dough, not the time in the fridge.

      These cookies taste quite good, but I had a hard time with the dough. I left it in the fridge overnight, but the dough was still too soft to work with. I worked extra flour in, but couldn't get them to work with cookie cutters at all. I finally ended up using my biscuit cutter and making great big cookies. Topped with Kittencal's Minty Lamb Lasagna
