I found this on and began making a few changes to suit my own tastes and preferences. The original was for lemon biscotti and can easily be switched back. One point per cookie.

I used all purpose flour. I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup. I used 2 eggs and added fresh orange juice. The dought was hard to mix so I added a bit more orange juice and half a lemon juice. The taste is good but I don't taste the ground almond. Thanks Toni. Made for HOliday tag.
