      I made these great cookies for the Sweet December event & for my X-Mas food gifts for DH's family this yr. They were so delicious & a trip down memory lane as well since they were my Mom's favorite X-Mas cookie. I made 2 chgs w/o chg'ing the heart of the recipe. My DH is diet-restricted from nuts, so I left them out. My containers were round & each item layered in them, so I also chg'd the presentation. I patted the dough into half-inch thickness, used a circular cookie cutter to get a shortbread-type cookie, then generously dusted them w/powdered sugar & re-rolled the excess dough to repeat the process. It worked great for my plan. Thx for sharing this lovely recipe w/us.

      What a lovely cookie, I doubled the recipe and shared with friends and office colleagues, everyone loved them. I followed the suggestion of cooking on a lower heat (325), worked well for me. Thank you LLynn, lovely recipe, made for I Recommend tag game
