"Rich, buttery and oh so tender! These are the perfect holiday cookies. I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for sharing."
"My version called for 1/2 lard, 1/2 butter. Incredibly flaky, but the time I tried it I did NOT like the lard taste. One could replace 1/2 or less of the butter with vegetable shortening for flakiness -- and handle as little as possible, like pie dough! A family favorite X-mas treat."
