    Sweet PQ?'s Note:

    I found this in my collection of cookies that I have made in the past for Christmas. I am not sure where the original recipe came from. On the recipe I wrote, "made in '93 - VERY Good!" They are a little labor intensive & I think that is why I don't make them every year. I think I will be making them this year. NOTE: Prep time does not include "resting time" overnight in the refrigerator. NOTE: Estimated yield (can't recall).
