I was fortunate to inherit this recipe from my husband's great-aunt. They slice nicely and are easier to make than traditional cutout sugar cookies.

"These were great....easy to prepare and so tasty. I didn't use butter, I tried butter flavored crisco. They turned out very crisp. Delicious."

"Loved this recipe! These have a great taste and are easier/quicker than rolled and cut sugar cookies. The only thing I did different was to roll the logs of dough in sanding sugar for a pretty effect and I iced them with a simple powdered sugar & water glaze. My family loved them - and they were so pretty for Easter! Thanks for sharing!"

"Very good. The dough crumbles when cold; let it warm up a bit."

"These cookies are wonderful. My daughter has nut allergies, so I can't buy the refrigerated sugar cookie that many recipes use as a base. This recipe is quick to make and tastes delicious!"
