I love my Bath Tub Santa,
and these cookies.!
They are very simular to a Russian Tea Cake or a Mexican Wedding Cookie.
My recipe uses whole wheat flour, and almond flavoring.
This gives them an wonderful different taste.
Maybe the use of anise extract would an be a nice flavor change also.
I am sure Santa would approve.
When you wind santa up ,his arm goes up and down, like he is scrubbing himself!...LOL

    Gradually beat in powdered sugar, salt,almond flavoring,and flour.
