finely chopped blanched almonds
Delicious. People who really love lemon may want to add more zest, but these were absolutely perfect for me. Thanks so much, Kit!
This recipe was surprising. It had such a refreshingly light taste and I loved all the spices. Next time I would maybe only add 1/4 T of nutmeg though with more almonds and a splash of milk. Also, I used vanilla extract instead of brandy. Yummmmm!
I substituted chopped pecans and cognac for several of the ingredients, and the results were pretty good. Another great recipe from Kit--way to go!
I substituted amaretto liquer for the congac, and found these to be very dry. They're good with tea, though.
