    Jenny Sanders's Note:

    This is a traditional Christmas favourite in our household. I make them in conjunction with Eggnog Shorties, which use up the egg yolks and also provide an excellent contrast in flavour and texture. These are not the most beautiful of cookies; they tend to come out mottled by the icing sugar used to roll them out, and to puff somewhat unevenly. So, just close your eyes as you munch. Mmmmmm.....

      I liked the taste of these cookies and so did my dear mom. These cookies took 22 minutes to bake in my pre-heated oven at 160C. To make them look a little prettier/different, before putting them to bake, I put a little freshly grated coconut on each of them on the top. I guess, you can also roll the cookies in freshly grated coconut to coat them well and then bake them. Toasted coconut is something you do not want to miss! It gives a crunch to these chocolate almond delights. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
