This is really the only rolled cookie recipe you need. It’s simple to the point of being boring, but it’s perfect and everybody loves it. Including Clara, of course.
She says her favorite flavor is “Canada Leaf.” There’s no secret other than using real butter and fresh eggs.

This is a basic recipe. You can add spices, like cardamom, cinnamon, and allspice. Or flavorings–extracts of almond, orange, or lemon. Grated orange or lemon peel is nice, too. You can also add different flavors to the icing.
