Snowflake Cookies- the diamonds on the cookie platter

Check out these Snowflake Cookies. You may have heard them called Wedding Cookies or Pecan Puffs, but at my house these have always been a special treat only in December.
These delicate cookies are light as a snowflake and melt-in-your-mouth tender. Last week I took them to a gathering of my girlfriends and one friend said, in all honesty, “That is the best cookie I have ever had, really ever, in my whole life!” Now we won’t get into how long she has graced the earth, but that was quite the compliment.
If there is one downside to these little sweets it’s that each batch makes only 12 cookies. (Doubling is not recommended, but repeat batches are highly suggested!) But having a small batch of cookies is nice when most of my cookie recipes make three to six dozen. I look at them as the diamonds among the cookie platter. May your cookie platters overflow!

What you're saying..
My husband grew up in Michigan and his mother was originally from the hills of Kentucky. I first had Chocolate Gravy one winter when she was visiting. Growing up in the South, too, I was surprised that I had never had it nor even heard about it. Anyway it was rich and delicious and she served it over hot, flaky biscuits.
My husband told me that when he and his cousin were running cross country in high school, before each Saturday race, his mother would make them biscuits and chocolate gravy. Now thanks to Cheap. Fast. Good! I am preparing your version of biscuits and chocolate gravy. Except now instead of heading to a cross country race we will be headed to our son's swim meet. Thanks for helping me carry on a family tradition.
