I substituted butter for the lard. The dough is very sticky. Here's a great way to handle it: Chill it in the refrigerator. Roll it out 1/4" thick between two sheets of way paper. Freeze this rolled out dough. When ready to use, peel wax paper from one side, set the was paper back in place, flip over and peel the wax paper from the other side. Cut out with cookie cutters. Soft cookies. Frosting makes them sweeter.



These are wonderful, if you like fat, soft cookies (which we do)! Great flavor. I had a little trouble with them being too sticky to roll out & cut well (adding more flour should fix that) so I just turned them into drop cookies & iced them with red & green butter frosting. Thanks for sharing!

I was hoping that all of the work that I had to do to make these cookies would be worth it in taste, but I'm sad to I was not. The dough was very sticky and impossible to roll out and cut. The finished product was dry and bland. It was more like a bad biscuit than a cookie. Too bad I wasted 7 cups flour on these!
