Broomstick cookies are not, as the name would make you think, intended to be a Halloween cookie. There are cookies out there called "broomstick cookies" that have a Halloween bent, but the Amish version of this classic is just because the cookies are rolled out like broomsticks. A Halloween connotation isn't intended at all.
Sometimes you can score these cookies in an Amish bakery, but they are tough to find. I found the recipe deep in my archives from about 10 years ago and thought I would share them here. Enjoy!
