These cookies have been on our holiday cookie tray for as long as I can remember. My aunt was the baker at that time. When my aunt passed away, the cookie detail fell to me. There are many recipes out there for these cookies but I haven't run across any with exactly these ingredients. They are light, delicate and not too sweet. Just be careful when you bite into them. Don't inhale because they immediately turn to dust in your mouth...in a good way.
