      Fabulous biscuits (cookies). Light and crisp, with a delicious coating of vanilla-scented sugar, but no discernible taste of almonds. I just cut mine into diamonds because I was in a hurry. The biscuits took a little under 15 minutes to cook. My only criticism of the recipe is the vast quantity of icing sugar specified for dusting - I put it all on, and it looked like a snowstorm, so next time I will half the quantity. Highly recommended (especially if you cut them into prettier shapes than I did!). Reviewed for Pick A Chef, Fall 2007.

      These cookies taste very good. Everything worked out well, but speaking as a person with minimal baking experience, I do wish the recipe had contained a little more detail. I followed Syrinx's advice re: baking time, as well as halving the icing sugar. Honestly, even cut in half I had a ton left over. The cookies themselves are buttery and tasty. Similar in taste to my mother's shortbread cookies, with a unique texture. The definitely have a festive flavour. I'll happily make these again. Made for PAC Spring '08
