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.
I baked the cookies for 20 minuets
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
Bake up a new holiday tradition for your family. From rugelach to pepparkakor, and buttercreams to pizzelles, there’s something sweet for every cookie platter.
