My mom always made these at Christmastime. They're delicate and do crack easily so leave enough room in the tin to cover.

These are delightfully crunchy and nutty shortbread cookies. They have a nice almond flavor. When dusted with powdered sugar, they look adorable. Add them to your cookie tray or give as a hostess gift. They're a simple cookie recipe and delicious! The Test Kitchen
