I found this in my collection of recipes from here and there and everywhere, meaning I don't know here it came from. I know I have made it because it has a star sticker on it - I always place a sticker on the recipes I make so I can remember which ones I've tried. This one has a silver star. At one time, I had a color-coded sticker system - silver meant we liked it, not LOVED it. At some point, however, I ditched my system because I couldn't find anything BUT silver stickers around the house - so I started sticking silver stickers everywhere....I'm going to go ahead and post it....I'll have to make these sometime soon so I can update this description....Chilling time for the dough is included in prep time.
