Yummy! Very buttery & delicate. "Turn after 10 min" means to rotate cookie sheet , I think.

My mom used to make these every year. We always called them sandies, but it looks like some people calling them wedding cookies. I could care less what you call them - they are absolutely delicious. These turned out exactly like I remember them. Yum!
