This cookie was horrible...it was the very first thing I've ever baked that DID NOT turn out.
4 cups of icing sugar to 2 1/2 cups of flour? One batch wasted and into the garbage.
Never again. Please re-check your ingredients list!!!!!!!!!!!
I increased this recipe to make 100 servings and baked it this past weekend. I added just a little more Amaretto and a touch more sugar to the recipe. I cannot say enough about how wonderful these cookies turned out. My husband who is not a major sweet freak tried one and fell in love, because, aside from the confectioners' sugar on the outside, these are not super sweet cookies. They are just right. I will definitely be making more of these cookies in the future. A big hit!
I am sorry but these "cookies" were terrible. Lack of sugar was most noticeable. I followed recipe to a "T" and was greatly disappointed and threw them in the trash.
These are pretty good, but really they could pass for sugar cookies. If I make them again I'll add more amaretto.
I thought this seemed to be a great recipe, but unfortunately, I was out of amaretto. Instead I used cointreu, and hazelnuts instead of almonds. The cookies tasted GREAT, I will definitely make them again.
These are very tasty and buttery. I would use less salt, maybe just 1/2 t. I definitely added the almonds, made for a nice texture-flavor combo. Instead of just rolling the cookies in powdered sugar at the end, I made a glaze for them, as you might do for an anginetti, of powdered sugar with enough Amaretto for a glaze consistency.
These are my new favorite cookies! Absolutely AWESOME!!! I made these for Christmas and there were none left and everyone asked me for the recipe!
