    winkki's Note:

    A family recipe as far as I know, and my father's very favorite cookie by far. They freeze well and actually keep quite a long time in an airtight container at room temp - if they don't all disappear first. ;o) A bit of work, but differently delicious and makes a LOT! Prep time does not include chilling dough.

      Love these delicious cookies! I usually make half of this recipe, using only one egg, the full amount of salt, and no baking powder. I add 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Both the dough and the cookies freeze well.
