      YUM! I was looking for a unique cookie to take to a cookie exchange and this was a great fit. I found the dough a bit sticky and difficult to shape but once I refrigerated them for a 1/2 hour and perfected my method it worked out great. Make sure you space them out a bit because they do expand. I also waited a few minutes before cutting as I found the cookies too hot right out of the oven. The glaze makes them look and taste even better but they are yummy without it too. Thank you Katra!

      Me again. I just had to try this again, but I did two variations. I put chocolate chips on top of one batch. Didn't impress me, but some liked it. For the other, I used lemon extract with almonds on top. After baking, I added minced candied lemon (#116131)and lemon drizzle. Lighter tasting cookie for another set of taste buds.

      Outstanding. Super easy, beautiful and beyond yummy. Can't wait to try with coffee! Very almond-y and very much like Dutch Almond Bars I tried in Orange City, IA (a Dutch town!). Thanks for posting, will be making this a regular. ;]
