OMGosh!!!! These cookies came from my friend (Bev) mom's bakery in Minnesota in the l960's. She made them fresh everyday and set them on the counter in a jar for the children to have one. They are so easy and fast and GOOD!!

Colored sugar to roll balls in; if you must you could make a sandwich with chocolate frosting.

I have used a cookie press to make a pretty design on top!

They are so short and tender and crispy and EASY

ENJOY!!!!
