    Michelle Berteig's Note:

    My sister made these for Christmas this year and they are really good! The recipe came from a magazine. These cookies are tender and crumbly, like Mexican Wedding Cakes, and are very chocolaty with a hint of cinnamon.

      I made these for Christmas this year and loved them! They taste even better after they age a few days. I also re-rolled my cookies in the sugar mix later on. The only thing I did differently was to add a tablespoon of cornstarch to the bottom of my cup when measuring the flour. It makes the cookies more tender and we prefer them that way. Also toasted my pecans. Yummy!

      I submitted the recipe to my local newspaper for their Christmas cookie issue and they were 1 of 25 selected to be printed in the December 2nd Food Section. You know they have got to be delish!
