    Kree's Note:

    This is another traditional Christmas recipe in my family. We usually use a cookie press and add red and green food coloring to the dough to make the cookies really festive! The serving size is an estimate, and applies to cookies made in a press. You'll get less if you roll them into balls.

      My dough turned out too thick to get thru the cookie press, which was disappointing. So we just did small balls, then mashed them down a bit and sprinkled on colored sugar. Tasted very good. Beware if you leave them in balls and then cook, you will end up with ball on top and flat bottom.
