2 3/4 cups
sifted all-purpose flour
2 1/4 teaspoons
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.
they taste like shortening and are absolutely terrible! i would never make them again!-YUCK!
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.
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.
This dough is best if you cover it and keep it in the fridge for a while. Roll it into balls, then cool them, then throw straight into the oven. If you try and bake immediately after mixing, the dough spreads way too much. Try adding some kind of peppermint flavor. I usually chop up whatever candy I have lying around. White chocolate peppermint bark is the best, but I've used andes mints or york peppermint patties. Its fun to flavor it with extract then dye half the dough red, and make swirly cookies.
These are a favorite around the house, church and workplace. Will definitely keep this recipe and make them often.
Very good taste and husband also likes. Delicate flavor and texture. Dough was hard to work with: too much quantity for my stand mixer and even though I chilled it overnight it was hard to handle. Next time I will make 1/2 batch.
Yum, these taste just like pecan sandies, I didn't slice them, but scooped the dough onto a pan
