This is my variation of the popular Mexican Wedding Cookie. My sister Robyn makes these every year, and we can never get enough. So I had to have the recipe to make more.

Delicious melt-in-your mouth cookies. Made them into crescent shapes exactly as written. They will be an excellent addition to the cookies I make for Christmas gifts.

Ingredients Nutrition
