Top Review by Gigina

These are excellent cookies. They taste like butter cookies but even better. I did not sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar on, and they were excellent without it. I substituted toasted walnut pieces for the almonds just because I had them in the house. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thanks, Chia!
