Mini Snickerdoodle Croissant Cookie is simple to make, but looks and tastes like it came from a french bakery.
If you follow me here you know my Mother n Law is Sicilian and she can cook and she can bake. I am still trying to get her cannoli recipe from her. I learned quickly once I was married that my husband appreciates a good meal and a great treat and he has very high standards of both. He is not afraid to tell me if he doesn’t like something and I have had to learn to take the good with the bad when it comes to his critique of my cooking.
What I can tell you is that he LIKES these cookies, really likes them. I have to hide them if I want to give away a few to friends, or gasp enjoy a few for myself.
I hope you try these little darlings because I am sure you and your lovelies will enjoy them.
