Original recipe yields 48 servings (3 - 4 dozen)
- Cream sugar with butter. Add eggs and mix well. Sift baking soda and all-purpose flour. Add to the butter mixture.
- Shape dough into rolls, wrap in wax paper and chill at least several hours, preferable overnight.
- Slice as thinly as possible (very sharp, thin blade knife dipped in water works best). When roll starts to get soft, return to refrigerator and start on another roll.
- Decorate with colored sugar, etc. and bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven until set but not brown, 8 - 10 minutes. Yield depends on how thin the slices are but you should get at least 3 dozen. NOTE: This is one of those family recipes that was taught to me with instructions like "add flour til it looks right" and "bake it til it's done". I have tested these measurements but I've never been good at using a timer or paying attention to how many I've made!
