I love this recipe. My mom made these when I was young. They are light, crispy and seem to melt in your mouth. Yum!

  • Roll dough into 1 inch in diameter balls. Place on cookie sheet. Press down with a glass bottom dipped in sugar. ( I have also used cookie stamps dipped into sugar.)

  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 10 minutes or just until edges are turning golden. Let cool slightly before removing from the cookie sheet.
