      Absolutely foolproof. I added only half the amount of sugar, and they were still very, very sweet. I didn't have enough almonds, so I substituted half with ground hazelnuts. Wow ! Lovely ! Thanks for the recipe.

      These were simple and fun to make. I used a small plastic bag with the corner cut off as a piping bag. I don't know if my almond essence wasn't very strong but I had to add about a teaspoon to get a good almond flavour. The biscuits were nice and crunchy on the edge but chewy in the middle - and didn't last long!
