I made these for a cinco de mayo party. The kids really loved them. Use unsalted butter and be careful not to use to much flour.



Easy and Cute!! They are delicious too! I guess it is the butter and egg yolks. Make sure you don't overcook.



Mencanto esta receta! They were sooooooo yummy!! I didnt have sprinkles so I used my food processor and used candy instead. It was really good! I even made ones that were red for Valentines day to give them more color. They reminded me of the cookies my abuelita used to make and I cant wait to be able to make them for her. Thank you for putting this recipe up.Me hizo recordar los dias que pasaba haciendo galletas con mi abuelita. Thanks again!!!!!!!!Oh I did add a little bit more vanilla though.
