Personal Notes:
These cookies were one of Grandma Glaze's hallmarks, but I have always had a little trouble with the flour amount and rolling out the dough. If anyone can get this to work, they have found a real gem. This can be spooned onto cookie sheet, iced and sprinkled or made as cut-out cookies.
