They are the simplest of cookie, but that’s what makes them so extremely good. Like 5 ingredients total make the cookie itself. And did I mention they are super quick?

Do you guy’s have any Christmas traditions? I would love to hear about them. We always do Christmas Eve at my moms, and that’s when Santa comes to visit as well. He usually leaves the presents in the closet or in the basement somewhere so he eludes the children in not being able to see him bring the gifts.

    1. Hi Karen. I’ve never made without self rising but to turn all purpose flour into self rising all you need to do is for every 1 cup of self rising flour in recipe add 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt to your all purpose flour.

    1. Hi Nancy, thank you for pointing out that I had left out the word cornstarch in the directions. You sift together your flour and cornstarch and mix it into butter mixture. I have since edited the recipe for that! Hope it helps 🙂

    1. Hi Linda, it’s supposed to be Almond. My recipe I have in our family cookbook has either extract so you can switch it out if you’d perfer or don’t have almond. I’ve switched it in the recipe. Thanks 🙂
