      YUM! What a great cookie! I left out the expresso, because I'm not a big coffee fan, but the cookies were still fabulous. They were chewy and had great almond flavor. I baked them on parchment paper and found I needed to cook them for about 14 minutes. Also, I would suggest flattening them into thick patties versus leaving them as a ball. The ones I left as balls oozed out a little of their insides. Didn't affect the flavor in the least, but wasn't as pretty. Also, for future bakers, 4 cups is about 20 ounces of almonds. Will be making a nice new addition to my cookie tray this year!

      Wow! What a delicious cookie! And it's all fancy pants and everything, with no fuss!!! These were really easy to make. The only change I made was when I had half the dough rolled in balls and sugared, I mixed a tsp of cocoa into the sugar, for a bit of colour contrast. Wonderful!!! Lisa, thank you for sharing your family recipe! Made for PAC Fall 2009.
