      Yes, these are wonderful, Christmas cookies. Yes, they come from the 1956 edition of Betty Crocker. The actual directions instruct to chill the dough, and bake them for 10-12 minutes. You don't have to put them 2" apart because they don't spread. I made them this Christmas (family tradition), and I did get 48 cookies out of the recipe.

      I have a question!? Is the powdered sugar one of the ingredients that I'm supposed to "mix in" to the batter? or is the 1/2 cup powdered sugar what I'm supposed to be rolling the balls in?

      Love these - they weren't the biggest hit with my holiday guests, perhaps because they are messy but they happen to be one of my favorites this year. They keep very well. We used pecans this year. I followed the baking instructions in the Betty Crocker Cooky book, I'm not sure if it makes much difference or not.
