Rich, delicate, pretty cookie for Holiday or party trays. Melts in your mouth. Easy to make, just a little labor intensive. The less you handle this dough, the more delicate the finished cookie.

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • Cream together confectioner's sugar and butter. Add vanilla, cinnamon and almonds.
  • Knead in flour by hand until completely mixed.
  • Chill dough for about an hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  • Roll out dough to one inch thickness. Cut into 1 inch pieces, and roll quickly and gently into a ball. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Bake for about 15 minutes.
  • When baked, dip or roll in confectioner's sugar. Store airtight in layers with waxed paper in between.
