Best christmas cookie ever! Most of mine are going to Maryland from Arizona for the 2nd year in a row (so they ship well in a tin). I have decreased the salt by 1/4 tsp and used chopped pecans. Other than that...no changes to the recipe. Perfect consistency before and after baking. The dough keeps well in the fridge for 3 days and in the freezer for 3 months. Its best to bring the dough close to room temp before baking. These cookies are suppose to be a little on the crumbly side. They are a delicate cookie. When coating in confectionary sugar, place in a large bowl then add the sugar on top. Gently move the bowl so they dont crumble. Makes it easier to coat if they are still warm.
