    LifeIsGood's Note:

    Another recipe from German Cooking cookbook. These traditional cookies will almost melt in your mouth. To get the proper consistency in these cookies, make sure the almonds are finely ground, not chopped!

      These were wonderful little morsels of bite sized goodness! My family really enjoyed these, made them yesterday and sadly today, they're already gone. Made for ZWT 7 Count Dracula and his Hot Bites.

      I'm getting cookie crumbs on my keyboard and a fine dusting of 10x over everything. Good cookies! No eggs, no salt, no baking powder or soda---I thought maybe these were going to just crumble away. But no worries---they are almost crunchy on the outside and then lovely and soft within. I made mine a little larger--about one and half ounces of dough in each and had a yield of 23 nice sized crescents. I have to lock these away or give them away before I eat them myself.
