Melt in Your Mouth Tea Cookies

These simple cookies will melt in your mouth and will look pretty too. This is one of my mom's favorite Christmas cookie recipes that I found in her Baking is Fun! cookbook from 1948 (the cookbook has a $.25 price on it). The book calls these "Holiday Nuggets" which doesn't sound too appetizing to me, so I have renamed them. I hope you love them as much as I do!
