This cookie comes out crisp and is great served with ice cream or sherbet, or just on its own.

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.
