These cookies are a family favorite for over 45 years, and usually made only at Christmas time, despite their simplicity. They keep well, but do not ship well. Please use butter, not margarine. It really does make a difference. 5 stars

I love these cookies. They melt in your mouth. But I use confectioners sugar in place of regular sugar and shape them into small squares with my hands instesd of the balls for a different look on my cookie tray. 5 stars

Would make this again.
Good flavor but mine turned out way too dry. I didn't have a problem with them flattening out they just were so dry they crumbled. Maybe next time I will try some more better and less flour. 2 stars
