Italian Butter Cookie Recipe

Friday, December 18, 2015

A pretty one for the tray around the holiday. These are simple and everyone always loves them. Little wreaths with tinted sliced almonds. All I do is add some green food coloring to the water, set the sliced almonds into the colored water until they turn green blot dry with a paper towel.
