      It doesn't get any better than these. They taste like shortbread and are buttery, sinful goodness.

      These cookies are truly awesome. I had a little problem with the amounts of butter and sugar, so I added another 1/2 cup butter and 1/4 cup sugar and everything was fine!! I can promise you, they don't last long on a plate at a party.

      These are truly delectable and so easy to make. My kids had a ball helping out!!I used hazelnuts as my family love them. When checking if they are ready, I recommend breaking one open. If there is no butter line then they are done. I live in the cosmopolitan city of Cairo in Egypt, my Russian colleague loved them, and when I added a quarter teaspoon of mixed spice, my family gave this recipe wows!! Thanks for sharing Carrie!.... I'll be giving the pecan tarts and the chocolate meringues a try this weekend!
