This was very good, the only changes I made was I used no brandy and pecans for my nut prefererence.I recommend this cooky, especially if you are a lover of Mexican Wedding cookies like myself.

I made these cookies for my husband because the recipe sounded like one that his grandmother used to bake for him when he was a little boy. I had to substitute Kahlua for the brandy, but the result was fantastic. This is a simple and delicious cookie. I can't wait to make another batch.

This is a nice recipe for a delicate, light, melt in your mouth cookie. Very much like an ice cream cookie.
