Very rich and buttery cookies from my friend Elisabeth. Just perfect for children, grandchildren and a few left over for us. A number of people have added that they baked the cookies for a longer time. I tried that, and my cookies burned. Then I realized it is because I roll them VERY thin. I measured a baked cookie, and it was 1/16". So, if you roll them thin, pay attention to the time, if they are not quite that thin it will take more time than I stated in the recipe. I also use this recipe for Easter cookies, and have posted some Easter cookie pictures. Today, 4th of July, we made Independance Day cookies. I baked them for 5 minutes. My sister-in-law says what makes them so good is how thin I roll them.
