Here's a recipe for Melting Snowflake cookies from American Family Cookbook
copyright 1974:

1/3 cup butter, chilled
1 cup sifted all purpose flour
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon cream
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
egg white, slighly beaten

1. Cut butter into flour until particles are the size of rice kernels
2. Beat egg yolks, cream and extract until very thick. Using a fork, blend into
flour mixture in halves, mixing well after each addition. Chill dough
3. Roll dough 1/4 inch thick on a floured surface; fold lengthwise in half,
then cross-wise in half; chill one hour. 4. Again, roll dough 1/4 inch thick.

rounds with egg white.
