Message from Dee Yingst:

My Grandma Jenneman made these cookies every Christmas, along with other cookies. However, she made these just the right size so us grand kids could snatch one of the cookies off of the cookie plate and pop into our mouth, before our parents told us to wait till after dinner. No child, wants to hear our parents telling us to wait till after dinner for treats especially at Christmas. They are my favorite Christmas Cookie, and to me her making them small showed me how much my grandma loved me.
