when i was a little girl, my mom used to make these cookies for us...she made cut out shapes, they didn't spread.

it seems like they were real buttery and kinda crispy. that was the 60's so i don't remember that well.

does anyone have a recipe?

You're welcome. I thought that might be the correct one, it was popular in the 1960s.

I love Fanny Farmer... I have 4 of the same copy of the book! LOL icon_biggrin.gif
