So simple and easy to make! I didn't have almond extract or almonds on hand but I did add some mint extract and it had a great taste.

This was so yummy, definitely a keeper. I just used my heavy frypan lined with alfoil and that worked really well.

Mmmmmm! Very good, and very easy. The house smelled divine while these were baking!! These remind me of cookies that my friend's family from the Netherlands used to make. Great chewy texture as well. I used a 9" cast iron skillet, but may try a bigger pan next time as they were a bit thicker than I expected. Overall, just wonderful!

They were very good but for some reason they came out a bit mushy. I doubled the recipe and put them in a larger tin and they took over an hour to bake. Besides that people loved them and they do, in fact, taste good with tea. I added brown sugar and honey on top for an added touch. Thanks alot for this one.

Yumm-mm-mmm!! Great taste with minimum effort! I don't have an iron skillet, so I used a 9x9 pan: the 30 minute baking time seemed to be just perfect for it! This cake will get made again and again... Thank you so much for posting!

Oh Wow. This was so easy to make and so so good. I will definately be making these again! Only thing is, I don't have a cast ironn skillet, so I used a glass 8x8 pan and had to cook them for an hour or so. Maybe that was a little long, but the confusing thing was...a toothpick test had it coming out sticky every time! Thanks for posting!
