Two cups sugar, one of butter, three of flour, two eggs, leaving out the white of one; roll out thin and cut in square cakes with a knife; spread the white of egg on top, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, and press a blanched almond or raisin in the center. -- Miss Clara G. Phellis

1 pound sugar, 3/4 pound butter, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, three eggs, and one pound of flour or enough to roll out. Cream together sugar and butter. Add cinnamon and eggs, one by one, mixing thoroughly until combined. Add flour and mix until well combined. Roll out and cut out with cookie cutters. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 12 minutes. Smaller, thinner cookies cook faster than larger, thicker ones.
We traditionally convert the pound of sugar to 2 cups and the pound of flour to 4 cups. These cookies can be frosted, but they are pretty with a sprinkling of colored sugar put on before the cookies go in the oven.
