      YUMMY! I made these as directed and they came out with that nice mild chinese almond cookie flavor with a light undertone of orange. The only thing I wasn't satisfied with is that they spread out into each other and were completely flat and crunchy instead of puffed and crumbly. Made for the Zaar tag game.
