Recipe by Dave Nelson

Swedish Sprtiz cookies, served at christmas time. This recipe has been handed down through my family and is made every Christmas. I can remember my Grandmother making these when I was a boy, as I waited for the beaters.

I loved these cookies. I made them yesterday and they are already gone. My kids had fun making them with the cookie press. One thing I learned though, if you're using decorative sprinkles put them on after the cookies come out of the oven or they will burn.
