This is one of my favorite cookies, when done well, it's truly sublime. I'm curious about how the almond flour works in place of freshly ground almonds. I've always heard that the pecan ones are Mexican wedding cookies, as pecans are a New World food. In fact, in parts of Mexico, the word for "pecan" and "nut" is the same. The walnut ones are Russian tea cakes, and the almond ones are Viennese crescents (same basic recipe, different shape). Thanks for the info. - I had no idea the type of nut made the difference in name. Almond flour IS finely ground almonds - so the result should be the same. PJH
