This was way easy and very good. I followed the directions but I had to handle these gingerly. They were a bit fragile. Will definitely do these again. Good recipe!

WOW! These are so easy to make and so very tasty. It was ready within no time, great to make when unexpected guests come over. I particularly like the appearance of these before they are baked , they reseble our popular Indian sweet 'ladoo'!! Very nice cookies.

We love these cookies. They're great year-round. One slight difference: we use 2 t. real vanilla and 2 t. almond extract. It really brings out that yummy nutty flavor without being too sweet. I also love adding food coloring to them depending on the time of year (red & green at Christmastime, or yellow, pink, & purple for Easter!!).
