    These sound great! Is there a substitution for the flour to be GF flour? Maybe with some almond flour? I noticed there's no soda nor BP.

    These are very easy cookies to make. I added fresh orange juice along with the orange zest and extra almond extract. Wow! How yummy!! Can't wait to make the other half of log I have waiting in my refrigerator!! Enjoy!! :)

    I love these. The almond slices add a crunch. They are a perfect combination of flavors and really easy to make. I only left them in about 12 minutes because they started to get brown around the edges, so I would advise checking about that time since everyone's oven temp may vary.

    I made a double batch of these...baked off half of a roll, after 15 minutes they all started to burn!

    MarilyninMiami, I do the same thing, but I flatten the roll on all 4 sides to make it rectangular. It's very easy to double the batch to freeze one. I do it right in the same mixer bowl. This keeps very well in the freezer. Before baking, I put more sliced almonds on top for decoration and crunch. I always have this dough ready whenever anyone stops in.

    I found this recipe very easy to make! A 'Good Thing' when you are not very experienced in the kitchen. The cookies turned out great.

    These are one of our favorite cookies. The flavor is amazing and they have become habit forming :) I made them for the group at our flying club, and they all wanted the recipe.... only difference is I roll the tube of dough into a 2 1/2 in roll and freeze so the cookies are ROUND instead of rectangular :) I also make a double batch and freeze one batch into short 6 inch rolls and just pop out one small roll when we want a single tray of cookies whenwe have company.
