I love the smell and taste of these cookies.  They instantly make me think of Christmas.  I remember eating these every year a kid as both my mom and grandma would make these.  Now I enjoy making them and my kids love to help roll them in the sugar and put them on the baking sheet.  Ahhhh good memories.
