I could hardly wait for these to finish baking. The aroma filled the house. I also used almonds and added the 2 chopped apples as you suggested. So moist and tasty. Ahhhhhhh. :-)

I agree with Merlot - I counldn't wait to try these and I was definitely not disappointed. I used 1 cup of finely ground almonds too. I would reduce the amount of cinammon slightly next time. The apple idea sounds great - I'll try that too

Very thin, light and crisp cookies! Very easy to prepare with excellent results! I used all butter, as I did not have any margarine on hand. I also used crushed almonds which was a delicious flavor combination with the cinnamon. I definitely will keep this recipe on hand to prepare again! Thanks, s'kat, for a delightful recipe!
