There are never enough of these! I could bring 12 dozen to my office and one co-worker (who's not a drinker) would eat them all. For those who don't like a strong alcohol flavor this is the way to go. Yumm! It's hard for me to estimate the prep time since I do bits and pieces at different times, so what I've listed is just assembly, not the time for blanching and grinding almonds and crushing cookies.

Made these for a cookie swap, and they were a real hit! I used lemon marmalade instead of orange, and then added about a tablespoon of triple sec, but that's the only change I made. I ended up making much smaller cookies, and had over 5 dozen. For Christmas, it adds a festive touch to roll the cookies in red and green colored sugar - very, very nice! Thanks, Reelani, for such a delicious, no-bake recipe!

Yummy! Such a surprising taste when you put it in your mouth! They were a hit at our house. The orange marmalade seemed a little too strong for my taste (overpowered the other ingredients) - maybe it was the brand I used. Might try to cut it in half next time and substitute something else to keep consistency. Quite a bit of prep time involved with blanching almonds, crushing and blending ingredients...but, they were definintely worth the trouble.

Yummy, we love them, I did add a little more tequila,I bought almonds that were already blanched. Easy to make. The recipe is a keeper. I am taking them to a Christmas Eve Party.
