This is a small, crisp delight. This is one of the recipes that Grandma Krupitza brought from Austria about 100 years ago. We generally serve these at the holiday season.

I really screwed this recipe up because mine was just a sloppy mess. But I added about 1t of Almond extract and 6T of flour just enough to end up with a very sticky batter. I patted in to a jelly roll pan and baked. These were awesome. Next time I will add some chocolate shavings and coconut to make an almond joy cookie. Read More
