Kris Kringle Ice Box cookies

Dad mixed these up last night and got up early this morning to bake them to put in the open class in the fair. This recipe was favorite of his grandma's and it is no wonder as they are so light, crispy and flaky. It is hard to not just eat them one right after the other until the plate is empty. We actually had to hide them from the kids this afternoon.
