These are crisp cookies. I did have to lower the temp. to 375. At 8 minutes the first batch was well browned. Thanks for a nice addition to my Christmas cookie tray.

Just like great grandma made... so easy. With a small cookie press I made over 80 with one batch. They are perfect. But at 400 degrees I only needed them to bake for 6 minutes. Perfect for potluck and cookie exchange.

These little buttery cookies are so good! I made them for my cookie trays and my grandchildren loved picking out their favorite shapes and colors. My oldest helped me make them, so she was so proud! This will be on my trays next year too! Roni
