No one would know these cookies were vegan if you didn't tell them. I rolled the balls into sliced almonds before flattening and baking them. They are a little "crumbly," but it's manageable; the chewy texture and almond flavor are VERY nice, BIG hit. Thanks, I will DEF be making them again!

Delish! These are really fast cookies to make and oh so good! Lots of almond flavor. I also pressed an almond in the middle for looks.

We enjoyed these cookies. Plenty of Almond flavor, but not over-sweet. I substituted gluten-free all-purpose flour for the pastry flour, and it came out great. I plan on making these for Easter, topped with icing and a Jordan Almond. Thanks for the great vegan recipe!
