These get a 5 for taste. They're...not exactly difficult to make, but time-consuming. The dough doesn't want to form into balls--it's a shortbread dough, of course it doesn't want to form into balls! It took me an hour to form the dough into balls, poke a teeny tiny hole in it, carefully coax a tiny bit of orange marmalade into that hole, then arrange almonds on the thing. (I didn't roll mine in almonds--I bought the wrong kind of almonds. However, with that said, the reviewer who suggested rolling each ball in whipped egg white is probably spot on--that would help them hold together better and give it a lovely sparkle when it bakes up.) I might make them again, or then again, I might just go back to my usual shortbread jam sandwich cookies. It's a toss-up! Thanks for the recipe, they really are tasty--just a lot of work when compared to other methods of achieving the same thing.
