A favorite of my friends and family as I make this often for party favors or simply for treats share. Share with me by a former co-worker friend of mine, the original recipe called for mini chocolate chips and walnuts which I replaced with almonds and cranberries. Feel free to switch with your favorite ingredients. Very delicate and light in texture.
