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..
I have all three of your cookbooks and have given them many times as gifts.
Last night I made the mini meatloaves – again -- such a time saver! Just getting dinner on the table some nights is such a challenge – particularly this time of year.
