These are fantastic cookies. Light and airy with the powdered suger dusting make them irresistible. You can't eat just one! I made these with my mother when I was growing up and were always a special treat. The recipe was lost in a fire and I have looked everywhere for another. You cant imagine how excited I am to have found this one.

Wonderful! I've been trying to find the recipe most like my Baba's because I left mine with my brother. We don't use alcohol in ours, either. I'm allergic to alcohol, so it was very important to find a recipe that doesn't use rum or whiskey. Thank you so much for sharing this!

I'd never heard of this before, but I needed a recipe to use up the leftover egg yolks from an angel food cake I'd made. I brought these to our Mother's Day brunch, and everyone loved them! Thanks for the recipe! I've submitted a picture here, but you can check out my blog for more pictures (clarindas.blogspot.com).
