Lily’s Swedish Vanilla Spritz

Lily's Swedish Vanilla Spritz

I had long been searching for the perfect, tender, melt-in-the-mouth pressed cookie recipe when I encountered this one in the home of my Finnish mother-in-law, Ellen Hill Bradley. Ellen got it from her English mother-in-law, Lily Hawkinson Bradley—a lady of some distinction in the culinary arts. Where Lily got it, only heaven knows, but perhaps it was from a Swedish friend, as the Swedish reference has traveled with the recipe for many decades.
