Notes

This very special Christmas Butter Cookie was my sister favorite cookie in the whole world and for more than fifteen years we never new the recipe since the cookie was made by the Miami Bake Shoppe in Southfield Michigan. The bakery has long since closed and while browsing through a group of cookbooks I would this cookie. I had no idea it was the same cookie but something kept telling me to make the recipe. Once day I gave in to me desire and after looking at the dough through in a few mini chocolate morsels. Well, low and behold it was Stephanie's cookie. We no longer lived in the same state so I shipped her a tin of cookies and well, as they say in the movies, the rest is history!

I'm not 100% sure if this is what I've been looking for, but the directions, make it sound as if it either is the ones, or very similar to them. They look great, and sound good!
