These are your traditional Italian Butter Cookies. They can be topped with maraschino cherry or chocolate ganache with a star tip. These are buttery and sandy like a shortbread cookie. These are always on your Italian Cookie Tray. Use a cookie press to shape these into different shapes such as a flower shape.
