My Great-Aunt Hilda makes this recipe every Christmas, and everybody just raves about it! Kipplens taste a lot like Mexican wedding cakes...but I like them better.

This recipe has been in our family for a long time. During the 1930s and 1940s, my mother baked a batch of these delicious cookies at least once a week. Neighborhood children who passed our house on the way to school looked forward to stopping on their way home for those cookies, still warm from the oven. Dunked in a glass of cold milk, they were a snack that was hard to beat!
