Every year before Christmas, my mom and I bake a tin of cookies for each of her sibling's families, our family friends, etc. We use my great-great grandmother's recipes; before she died, she asked my mother to carry on her Christmas cookie-baking tradition. This is one of the cookies we make every year, and one of my favorites. It requires very few ingredients which almost everyone keeps on hand. They turn out crispy and sort of a mix between a shortbread and spritz. Butter may be used instead of margarine. Cook time does not include the time these cookies need to chill. Servings and Yield are a guess; both depend on how you cut them.
