My aunt made these cookies since I was a child and I have very fond memories of her and her cookies. My aunt passed away and I never got the recipe from her. Luckily I found this LOL recipe. I followed the recipe and the cookies turned out perfectly. Melt in your mouth delicious. They taste just like my aunt’s cookies. These will be added to my holiday baking menu.

Being from AZ I know these as Mexican wedding cookies. My family doesn't like the crunch so I substitute crushed almonds for almond extract and it is wonderful. Good easy recipe when making multiple types of cookies over the holidays. I also cover a few with shredded coconut. It's awesome
