Spanish Cookies

I was recently visiting my mom and she has this old box of hand written recipes; ones that were used to store all her precious recipes passed on from generation to generation. This recipe was adapted from my Great Grandmother “Macame” (Mother Carmen) who is my mom’s name.  Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do.  It brings back the warmth of being a child and enjoying cookies out of the oven. 

Merry Christmas!

Love and Light,

Jeanine on the Scene
