The Following recipes are from The Frugal Gourmet Celebrates Christmas, which is a beautiful book.
I na bowl, combine all the ingredients and knead together to form a dough. Place half the dough, shaped into a rough rope, on a large piece of plastic wrap. Fold the plastic over and work the dough into the shape of a log 2 inches in diameter. Repeat with the remaining dough. Freeze the logs until hard, about 2 hours. To make the cookies, cut the dough into 3/16-inch slices and place on nonstick cookie sheets. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool or eat them warm from the oven.
