Would make this again.
I've made these for years. I got the recipe from a subscription that gave recipes on cards. I do frost them sometimes. I even put red or green food coloring in the frosting. My family and friend love these cookies. I never have enough. 5 stars

My grandmother made these all the time, and so have my mom and myself. However, we've never used vanilla, and have used either chocolate sprinkles, or marischino(?) cherries (drained wel) on them. They are the best cookies around!! 5 stars

I've made these for years and everybody loves them. Instead of using a fork, I use the bottom of a glass dipped in colored sugar to flatten them. 5 stars

Would make this again.
These were my late mother's best cookies, and she made them faithfully for the holidays. I now make them for my kids. I can't get enough of the old traditions. I usually put a cherry on them but I don't frost them. They store easier with no frosting. 5 stars
