I'm doing my holiday baking and my mom just reminded me on the phone, "Don't forget that mailman cookie!" This recipe is really easy to make and very tasty. It's a great cookie for people who don't like chocolate or are just plain tired of it. A nice flavorful change from the standard holiday cookies.

These cookies were OK but they were missing something. I might add lemon extract if I make them again
