Decent for a spice cookie, but not as good as the Windmill cookies you can buy at the store (this is rare for a storebought cookie to be better than a homemade one). Nix the citron, it is unnecessary to the flavor, hard to find, and makes the cookies more fragile due to the chunks in an already crumbly dough. I diced the almonds as small as I could by hand, will probably blend them next time instead, as I prefer these cookies to be smooth. I don't have a mold, so I rolled these very very thin, 1/4 inch or thinner, and used a cookie cutter. A star cutter didn't work, as the points kept falling off. A bell worked well, as did a standard circle. I baked them two minutes longer than suggested, to get an extra crunchy finish. They are lightly sweet and good with hot herbal tea.
