I've been making these as part of my Christmas cookie roundup for years, and this one's a keeper. Simple to make, and they melt in your mouth. One of my favorite cookies ever.

This gets raves everywhere I bring them and they are my personal favorite Christmas cookie for the past 15 years. They also freeze well. I toss them again in confectioners sugar before serving or gifting.
