I thought these were pretty good. I would rate them between a 4 and 5. They reminded me of an almond version of a pecan sandy cookie. Getting the dough to come together was a bit tricky. I added 2 teaspoons of water and it worked perfect. I made a half a recipe and got 17 cookies using a standard cookie scoop. I did notice that they keep the shape in which they are placed on the sheet. So, I would flatten slightly unless a mounded cookie is desired. ty

I followed the recipe,tast was good,crunchy,but they were so horribly dry.I think there should be less flour. Might try again with 1 cup flour.

Amazing! Taste like Sandies except hot out of my oven. I just suck too many down without letting them cool enough.

These were a huge hit at the office. A nice light cookie that puts a smile on your face.

I used 1/2 a cup LESS than the recipe and that helped with the dryness and difficulty keeping the dough together that previous reviews mentioned. Quick, easy and YUMMY!!!!

There is something missing from this cookie, I made them twice and the dough was crumbly and cookie was very dry, sorry to say I couldn't serve this to anyone.

I made these because I had all the ingredients on hand. Seemed to me that there were not enough wet ingredients and after looking at other reviews I thought I would try adding an egg. I used a cookie scoop and the "dough balls" did not spread at all. They tasted pretty good but didn't look so hot. I rolled them in powdered sugar and now they look a bit more appetizing. The flavor was good but nothing to write home about. I doubt that I will make again.
