Good very lightly sweet cookies that are great with a cup of tea. My yield was more like 8-1/2 dozen though so be prepared for a lot of rolling and cutting - and sharing! Read More

I had never heard of these but after reading about them I think this is probably a good recipe for them. I replaced the shortening with butter because I never keep shortening on hand and I found other recipes for this with butter. Very easy to make. The caraway seeds are a bit odd in a cookie and I wonder if they could be ground up first so you aren't left with so many seeds in your teeth.:-P The cookie baked up nicely and has a nice flavor.

I wasn't too crazy about these but I think it was mainly because of the caraway seeds. Don't like the taste of them AT ALL. Read More
