These cookies are going down in my cookbook as one of the TOP 5 cookies made till date! I cannot pen down enough how much I enjoyed treating myself to one little cookie from the whole lot of 1 dozen cookies that I made this evening to serve mom and dad with tea, amazing little cookie it was! Just a few changes here and there which I made are: 1) I substituted the butter with margarine(I used 1/2 a cup). 2) I used 1/2 a tsp. of orange essence instead of the grated orange zest. 3) I totally missed the word "toasted" for the almonds, so, mine were not toasted, but yet, the cookies have come out so good. Also, I'd like to mention that since there was not too much margarine used in making the dough, I lightly greased my baking tray with margarine before baking the cookies. The cookies were done in 20 minutes. I allowed them to remain in the oven for 20 additional minutes, before removing them and allowing them to cool completely. Now its tea time and I can't just wait to serve them! THANKS SO MUCH, Erin, for sharing these. For those who are vegetarian, this is a sure good cookie to please one and all. I'd recommend this to every single person on the planet! Innumerable thanks to You, ERIN, Again n again :)
