Grandma Rose's Sables

It just wouldn't be a holiday without making my Grandma Roses' Sables. My grandma had a small tin that sat on top of her kitchen counter. That tin was either filled with Mandelbrot or these cookies. These were my favorites.

She would make these using a cookie press and they would either have an M & M in the center or be sprinkled with multi colored non-perils. My favorite are the ones with the M & M's. However, I always have to make both versions. Today I decided to make a little glaze and then add the non-perils. I think I like it the original way (a bit messier, but the nostalgia of them makes them taste better).

Happy Holidays!
