This has been a family favorite for many, many, years, I usually make a double batch to ensure having them around for more than a day! The recipe comes from the now defunct Country Cooking magazine in an article on Czechoslovakian cooking. I grind my almonds in my Cuisinart and mix the recipe up in it also, but a mixer will also work fine. (I guessed on the yield, they make a full tray plus).
This recipe was printed in an advertising flyer for a local realtor. My neighbor brought some over after she made them and they were pretty dang tasty. These would make great cookies for St. Patrick's Day.
I used to love the butter cookies they sold in my high school cafeteria. I've been looking for the recipe and this comes very close (if my poor old memory serves me right). These might be a little more tender than the CPS butter cookies but they're close enough for me!
