I can remember sitting in the kitchen watching my Mom make these as a little girl. I didn't even know what a rolling pin was for the longest, because my Mom always used a smooth glass to roll the dough, then used the opening as the cookie cutter! I love these plain, but my Mom quite often frosted and made sandwich cookies with Chocolate Icing (Frosting) and Sweet Milk and Sugar Icing (Frosting). There are a couple of similar recipes, but they use more shortening. My Mother listed the amount as 1/3 cup heaping...which is more like 1/2 cup.
