Very tasty...I switched it up bit and used 2 cups flour, 1 cup butter instead of shortneing, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, I omit the coconut, and added 1 cup ground almonds. Hubby said they may be one of the best cookies I've made!
These are amazing. Can't stop eating them once you start.
Oh my, these are good. I made them for my "chinese style" meal. these are easy to make and they are delicious. thankyou for sharing.
This was just ok. They seemed a little sweet to me. One person mentioned substituting butter for some of the shortening and I think that would make them taste a little better. I would also use coconut extract to substitute the real thing and some more almond extract. I used 1.5 teaspoons, but I think 2 tsp would have been better.
One reviewer mentioned that these cookies burn really quickly. The truth is that they're ready long before they look baked, so trust the timing! I ended up using 1 cup white and .5 cup brown sugar, since I ran out, and also forgot to add the coconut to the first half of the batch. Hint to anyone who, like me, bakes these biscuity cookies to brick-hardness: put them in a zip-lock with a slice of apple, and they'll soften up a bit! Overall a good, easy to make cookie.
I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening. I reduced the flour by 1/4 cup and eliminated the coconut, but added in about a cup of ground almonds. I rolled the dough into a 'log' and froze it, then I cut it in slices and topped each with a whole almond. The cookies got really big, but they were beautiful and tasty. Thanks!
These were great and very easy to make. It's not heavy on the almond flavor (so just add a bit more almond extract to make it more intense). This was a nice ending for a Chinese-inspired meal. Thanks!!
Delicious... I followed the directions exactly. Thank you for a great recipe!
I halved the recpie, and mine flattend and wasn't as nice looking as Kim D's picture. Maybe i should've added more flour for the cookie to have a better shape. I use only 1/2 t almond extract for half the recipe and it wasn't as "amond flavory" as i expected.
These are so good! My DH came home from work and ate about 6 of them all at one time. He normally doesn't like cookies. I had to hide the rest so we would have some tomorrow because we have company coming over. Anyways, I followed the directions exactly and wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for sharing such a winner!
