The plan was to bake almond biscotti but due to the labor involved and lack of time I chose this recipe. This has to be the most delicious almond cookie I've ever tasted. They were quick to make and the directions were very clear. Perfect cookie for tea time or as a coffee dunker. Thanks for posting!
I love almond cookies and these were terrific. Instead of rolling them in powdered sugar I used a sifter and sprinkled liberally.
These are wonderful, simple tea cookies. I leave out the nuts and use vanilla extract instead of almond.
