My oldest friend gave me this simple and delectable cookie recipe in 1962, and I make it every year for the Christmas season. The cookies are not as heavy as many butter cookies. Light and delicious.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix ingredients well, chill until dough is firm.
  2. Press cookies through a cookie press or roll out into small balls, then flatten into 1 inch rounds.
  3. Place cookies on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees until they start to look a bit browned, about ten minutes or so.

This is an easy and good recipe .I used my cookie press for these cookies. I always put my cookie sheets in freezer, the dough sticks better to the cold baking sheet. Once totally cooled store in air tight container.
