Finnish Butter Cookies

(Note I borrowed this photograph...I will post my own when I make them next time)

Mother made these cookies at Christmas time.

3 1/2 cups flour
1/2 pound butter (Mother used margerine)
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs

Knead dough and roll out with baking pin and cut into small rectangles an inch by two inches each.

Whisk an egg and swab the top of the cookies, then shake a little sugar on top ( the Finns shake a little ground almonds too) and bake at 400 degrees til light brown.
