This is it. I've been searching for a recipe that tastes exactly like my grandmother's butter cookies... I have fond memories of baking them with her when I was little. She died four years ago and every time I ask my mom for this recipe she said "Oh it's here, somewhere..." I went through most of the spritz/butter cookie recipes on this site and I knew for a fact my grandma did not use cream cheese in hers, so those were automatically thrown out. I tried one using regular granulated sugar, but it wasn't right... THIS one is right. The taste and texture is spot on. The only thing I did was increase the vanilla. For those who think this cookie has an after taste - I guess make sure you use high quality butter. This is one recipe where you shouldn't use 'generic' or cheaper butter, since the flavor is dominant.
