‘Butter’ Cookies

These beautiful, delicate cookies are made with a cookie gun. They look and taste like butter cookies but are non dairy. The surprise ingredient is hard boiled egg yolks (margarine is no surprise..). This is a very old recipe we have from our beloved Bubby Rose who was a great baker!

Enjoy them but beware – they are addictive!
