I make these cookies every Christmas, Usually in the shape of a tree. They are one of my favorites. I sprinkle with colored sanding sugar or decorate with silver dragees. I think the silver dragees make them look elegant. This recipe was included in the directions with my Mirro Cookie/Pastry Press.

P.S. I like these better than sugar cookies.
