Anyone care to share thiers? I have a cookie swap on Saturday and I loved these growing up. (I grew up in South Texas).
the ones I remember had pecans and tasted a bit like anise.

They are very powdery and covered in cinnamon sugar, usually served during the holidays and at weddings....I don't know what you would call them in english.
