    Chabear01's Note:

    I haven't made these yet but found the recipe on a newspaper clipping in Mom's grey cookbook. Sure that either she or my big sister made these for us one Christmas.

      My Mom makes these every year for Christmas and they are a wonderful tradition. She adds a drop or two of red food coloring to tint the dough pink. Thanks for sharing the recipe here !
