Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!!! I JUST made them, and brought them to a friend of a friend, who just gave me a chandaler for my old house!!! The guys loved them--I did what Theresa said, halved the recipe, except for the butter--and ADDED more almond taste by adding 1 tsp. of almond extract. (I used sliced almonds, cause I had them.) Now, I'm thinking of adding dried cherries! I looked at your recipes, because I , too, ate tomato marmalade and peanut butter sandwiches when I was young, took them to school, so the bread was totally soggy when lunch time came!!! My mom's homemade tomato marmalade! I also live in SE Michigan, near the St. Clair River. Keep up the sharing of the recipes, Thanks, again! :)
When I made these I halved the recipe. Next time I would use an entire cup of butter for half of the recipe. The dough was a bit on the dry side and it was difficult to form the dough into balls for baking. Also, when the came out of the oven, they had hardly spread at all. I think the extra butter would help them to spread a bit more. But I will say this...the flavor is wonderful. My husband - who only eats chocolate chip cookies - couldn't stop eating them! I will definitely be making these again. Thanks.
Next time I make these cookies, I will CUT down the almonds!! There was way too many almonds!! I will only use 3/4 cup next time!! Otherwise they would have been alot better! Everyone that ate them asked if I got alittle carried away with the almonds, they said they were good but too many nuts!!!!
