These have been in my family for as long as I can remember. They're really just known as "Nona's Sugar Cookies", but they're almost like a sweet shortbread - very different from a traditional sugar cookie. If you're into eating cookie dough, this stuff is the best EVER. My mother used to have to hide it from the kids while it chilled. For some reason, you can eat a bunch of it and never feel sick :-) My mother says she likes to put in 1/2 cup of orange juice and add flour to keep the necessary texture. The orange flavor really makes this cookie.
