I personally did not care for these cookies because I thought they were dry. I will make them again though because my aunt and grandmother LOVED them! So I was happy to make a cookie for others to enjoy on Christmas :) 3 stars

These cookies are fabulous. They have a crubly texture and really rich flavor. Try making them with dark chocolate chips (chilled or frozen helps). Helpful hint: Make sure to chill the dough for a while before trying to roll them into shape. 5 stars

My new daugher in law is Mexican. I made them to take to the Red Hat Society Christmas party this Thursday. I tasted a sample. They were great. I will make them again for my daughter in law when she visits in December for the holidays. Yummy
crumbly and delicious
