These are super easy to make! First batch everyone liked and then on the second batch I added just a few fresh swipes of nutmeg, a dash of vanilla and maybe 1/4 c. fine ground pecans (almost a puree) to give them more of a noticeable flavor. I found it easier to let the batch cool a bit then form into balls to make a more accurate size and shaped cookie. Also on a oops note if you don't cook these long enough let them cool a bit and then make them into cannoli, they are a wonderful twist.
I was searching for recepies by a funmodus, the date of my uppcoming wedding, 17th of may 2008. I love these cookies! Thank you so much!
