These are the perfect tea cookie and great for gift giving. I used to include them in my Christmas baking to give as gifts. I haven't baked for gifts in years. I may have to do that again now that I found some of my old cookie recipes! Hope you enjoy!

Note: The long prep time is due to chilling the dough before baking. Minus the chill time, these are super fast and easy to make.
