Shell Cookies Old Fashioned Recipe

This is my grandmother’s recipe I want to preserve because the cookies taste so good, my family likes it! The cookies have savory flavors, not too sweet, and buttery taste. And certainly reminds me of my childhood. I made the cookies shaped like a shell, very good to be enjoyed in summer activities at the beach or water play in the yard.
