This cookie is a wonderful soft cookie that will keep you sneaking more after the kids go to bed. I think I have seen these cookies being called lady fingers also. Yummy any time of the year, but just remind me of Christmas!!!!

I thought this recipe was really good, I omitted the chilling time and used a cookie press to make the cookies instead of rolling them out. I would decrease the oven temp though 400 was much to high and I shortened the baking time to 6 min. maybe my oven gets to hot. nice tasting cookie
