      WONDERFUL!!! Thank you so much for sharing again. These are so much better than ones you can buy. I added chocolate icing just because I like chocolate and almonds together. Next time I will use hershey's kisses instead of icing. Thank you again, Derek

      Nice taste; not quite the texture I was after (looking to replicate a cookie I had that was a little drier). Easy cookie and a nice, family-friendly dessert for stir-fry or other Asian-inspired meals.
