Italian Holiday Cookie #3: Amaretto (Almond) Cookies

I love throwing a themed holiday party on Christmas Eve each year for Eddie's Family. Growing up as a family we always celebrated Christmas Eve with my Aunt Rose so when we moved to Utah it didn't feel right not doing anything - Hense Christmas at the Aced every Christmas Eve

This years Theme is Italian Christmas Pizza Party and for dessert I am making a ton of Italian Cookies
