Italian Wedding ( Cookies )

Cassie *


A dear friend of mine shared this delicious cookie recipe with me. I feel so honored to have such a recipe to pass down to my children.

They are melt in your mouth delicious! I love the ease of them also. I had them mixed up in a matter of 5 minutes.

This attractive cookie would look so beautiful displayed on your tray full of Christmas goodies.

You could easily double or triple the batch.
