These are so, so good! I also love that the prep takes place almost entirely in the food processor...so easy! Thanks for sharing this recipe; I am certain I will be making these often.
I can't believe I forgot to review this! I first baked these for my temple for Rosh Hashanah last year and they were a hit (once I managed to get them out of the house!) When I catered Passover, I baked them in the bottom of muffin tins and then used that for crusts for mini cheesecakes. Those went over really well too! The batter does spread though, I was worried when I first made them because I didn't expect it. I can't wait to try these with lemon zest too
These cookies taste very much like the little Italian Amaretti cookies, with the addition of a very very subtle orange flavor. The cookies bake into a flat disc and they are airy and crisp, much like a meringue. I love Amaretti cookies so I found these cookies to be very enjoyable - in fact, I'm on my 4th one with a cup of coffee. Yummm.
