      This is an unusual cookie for North Americans but I love the difference. My changes were to use Splenda for the sugar and 1.5 tsps of brandy extract. These are less sweet than what we have come to expect in a cookie, almost savory in fact but I find that to be part of their charm. They come out very tender and almost flaky and were delicious with my cinnamon tea.

      This actually is better than the usual shortbread I know, although I do love that :) These cookies have a most fragrant odor - buttery, with a hint of marzipane from the almonds - wonderful! Just smelling them is delectable. The dough already made my mouth water with the slight brandy smell. I am afraid that my photo will not do the lovely taste justice - but I have to share this! I used gluten free flour and rice milk which worked perfectly. Thanks for posting this! Made for ZWT6 Germany / Benelux.
