“Another Christmas cookie. These are very fragile, and the yield depends on how carefully you roll them out and whether any break - trust me, they're worth it. Prep time includes mixing, cooling, and assembling time.(Oh, and pay no attention to the nutritional information behind the curtain - you're happier not knowing).”
