I made this recipe for a christmas cookie swap. They came out pretty good. I did make a change and I dyed my dough and used colored sprinkles instead of the almonds.The only recommnedation is that you make sure that the cookies are done. I had better luck letting the edges get slightly golden. Other than that great cookie if you like almond.
