    Dorel's Note:

    Don't let all the vanilla scare you away. These are excellent cookies. Very nutty and delicately sweet. A fine finish to a heavy or spicy meal. To add a unique taste substitute the vanilla with 1 tablespoon of gin. The original recipe stated that. I have never tried it.

      I substituted the ground almond (I don't have a food processor) for almond meal from the grocery store and they turned out beautifully. however it came out to 20 small cookies rather than 36. I imagine 36 cookies would be like bite size.

      I don't know if I was just expecting something very different from what this actually is, or if I did something wrong, but these did not turn out well at all. I didn't grind the almonds into a fine powder, as I wanted some texture. But otherwise, I followed this exactly, and ended up with some very hard cookies that really don't taste that great. On the first sheet of cookies, I used the almond on top, and then the next couple, I flattened with a sugar-coated fork. And I only baked them for about 15 mins. Not sure what the deal was, but I'll be looking elsewhere for an almond cookie. Sorry!

      The most delicious cookie I have ever made. I only make half just to try it, but tomorrow i'm going to make the whole recipe again because we love it. If you like almond cookies this is the right recipe for you.
