    Angie in St. Charles's Note:

    If you love butter, then you will love this cookie! I used to love when my mom would make these for Christmas. It is my favorite cookie by far and I make them for special occasions! It is a cookie that you cannot stop eating once you start. They are very pretty among a plate full of other cookies if you use food coloring and cookie press for decorative shapes. My grandmother created this recipe and you can make a chocolate version by substituting 1/4 cup cocoa for 1/4 cup of the flour. This recipe can also be doubled easily.

      I made these cookies this morning. We really like them...I will be making them for Christmas. The dough is very tender and not too sweet. I did refridgerate the dough between batches. Thanks for a great recipe!

      While this is a delicious tasting dough, I found that I had to refrigerate the dough after the first "pressing" and in between each batch because it was so soft.
