Delicious - everyone loves them! You don't have to make them in crescent shapes. I prefer to make them as little round cookies, or as little ball cookies - it doesn't matter.

A bit too much flour, I'm going to reduce the amount if I make a next batch.

GREAT RECIPE, DIDN'T HAVE BRANDY, SO I SUBSTITUTED MADAGASCAR VANILLA AND TURNED OUT REALLY GREAT

A delicious cookie! Yummy! Thank you so very much for this recipe! An oldie but goodie.

This is not a very sweet cookie unless you roll them in the powdered sugar. Try one after baking, see if you like it or not as is, then play around with how much powdered sugar you want to add. ...

just nothing special

I made theses for Christmas cookies as one of my 4 types this year. They came out so good they were everyone's favorite! I used almond flour instead of the ground almonds.

I agree with Monica. Since it's not a sweet cookie, just powder it with sugar. It adds to its sweetness. Chilling the dough makes it easier to roll though. I love it with my morning coffee...

My husband loves these cookies. They bring him back to his childhood!
