Diamond cuts recipe, these eggless diamond cuts brings back memories of my late grandmother, when my cousins, brothers, and myself wanted to munch something during our Christmas vacations she used to give us diamond cuts and every time I make this takes me back to those good old days.....Usually eggs are added to the flour and this is without messy sugar syrup......just toss in powdered sugar and it is done......that easy!!!
