I had to make these a couple of times to really get them right. They really do melt in your mouth. One little trick I do is to use butter flavored shortening.



I was so thrilled when I finally found this receipe. It's very similar to the same cookie that I remember having on my first day of kindergarten. The recipe does make quite a few cookies. I would recommend scaling the recipe down. This a short bread cookie so it isn't very sweet.



these are deliciously airy not too sweet little treats. I rated them four stars because the dough is a bit challenging to work with. you absolutley MUST allow the dough to chill or you will have a heck of a time cutting it. And be sure to slice the dough no more than half an inch thick or they wont have that light airy texture you want.
