    Sonatina's Note:

    These were my favorite cookies growing up. I always requested my mother make them for my birthday. They look gorgeous - the mere sight of them filled me with excitement. Their other main appeal is that the dough tastes pastry-like. It's very delicious and I've never had another cookie that tastes anything like it.

      Stir in flour and baking powder and mix until a stiff dough forms.
    3. 3
      Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour.
    4. 4
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
    5. 5

      On lightly floured surface, roll dough (half at a time) into 15x9-inch rectangle.
