This is my Grandma Bea's recipe for an old family favorite cookie. It is similar to the Mexican Wedding Cookie, but to my family, it is an almond crescent cookie. It melts in your mouth and leaves a smile on your face. :)

Step-by-Step

  1. Add all ingredients to a large bowl. With your hands, mix the dough till a ball forms. The less mixing, the better the dought will be.
