I have been making these cookies every Thanksgiving and Christmas for over 30 years, they are a requested favorite, and I have won blue ribbons at the state fair with them twice. The dough is so flaky it melts in your mouth.

NOTE: Although you use yeast, you do not let them rise, this is what gives them their delicious tenderness
