ground blanched almonds
1 2/3 cups
Like alot of the other reviewers I rolled into balls instead of crescents. I used 1 teas almond extract instead of vanilla. Baked for about 20 min to make sure they were firm enough to hold together when rolling. I rolled in powdered sugar while still warm and then again when cooled so they look prettier. These are alot like wedding cookies. Very easy and oh so goooooood! Thanks Beth!
The dough was very sticky and difficult to work with even after being in the refridgerator for a long time and the addition of more flower. "Extemely fragile" is an understatment. Most of them crumbled when they were touched after they were completely cool. The backed cookies were sour tasting - the powdered sugar dusting made them tolerable.
Was having problems with the dough falling apart, After reading the reviews I found I was not the only one. I decided to add 1/3 cup of sugar and also 1 tsp of Almond flavering as well as 1 tsp vanilla. Also baked for 20 mins. They turned out incredible..
Very yummy, I let them cool completly also before rolling them in the sugar mixture. I added almond extract as well as vanilla. Next time I will add a little bit of sweetener to the cookies, even thought they taste great, they could use a little sugar. Loved the recipe, thanks
AWESOME COOKIE!!! Everyone LOVES them! They melt in your mouth!! I even made them with lemon & maple! Just a GREAT recipe! I wrote this one down & put in my recipe box!!
I tried the recipe as it is written, and the person who wrote it forgot to mention in the first line to mix the sugar with everything else. I only used the sugar on top when they were done. I couldn't figure out why they didn't taste the same as my mother inlaws until I went back to the recipe. So 2 batches tasted like flour and salt.
will definetly make again
This recipes is one I will never make again...not only was it very difficult to form the cookies but once the cookie had baked it tasted like sawdust...If you particularly like that taste then this recipe is for you! If not don't waste your time!!!!!!
