These are happy, round butter cookies that apparently can be varied many ways. I chose to make the dough ahead of time and freeze it since we were going to be away for the weekend. You barely mix the dough, then roll it into two logs and wrap in plastic wrap. To bake, I thawed a bit in the refrigerator, painted on an egg yolk "glue" and then rolled the logs in red sugar (for Valentine's Day!). I cut them in 1/3 inch slices and baked. They turned out well and were interesting to look at. The red sugar almost looked like a rind on gouda cheese! I intended to take a picture, but these cookies were entirely consumed by the Soup Night guests before I got my camera out!
