This cookie is in the 1955 Betty Crocker Cookbook, I've been making them for years, just finished doing that today, must refrigerate in the South(butter goes rancid) Actually, you may use any "cookin' nuts you have on hand-- delicious. I once made them for a wedding reception at my church,(didn't care for the groom-didn't know the bride-wanted to put cyanide in them,)They divorced three monhts after they were wed--?

Just add "B" to eat and it becomes "Beat" which this is meant here.

In step one, you have "eat..." are you SURE you want to EAT shortening, confectioners sugar, vanilla and almond extract?? LOL...that would be interesting, to say the least... :)
