      My end result with these was great, but it took a little while to get the temperature and times right. They seemed to brown too quickly at 350, so i did mine at about 300, and I didn't bake them for the full 10 minutes, more like 8. Also, when they're done, they still look a little undercooked, but will firm up and still be crunchy when they cool. Not too sweet, and the cookies are also good themselves, they kind of taste like an almond version of pepperidge farm milanos. Thanks!
