    These were delicious :) Sometimes they're good with a little apricot jam as well. I used the almond extract but next time I might try without for a slighter almond flavor.

    OMG these were fantastic. My parents came over as I was taking them out of the oven, and once they cooled we tried them and everyone including my husband loved them. The orange and the almond really complimented each other. I also enjoyed the dough. Can't wait to try again. Thanks Martha for sharing.

    These are great and pretty easy! I love the orange and almond together - very nice accent. I could only find blanched almonds sliced and those worked well - I just put a small pile of them on the top of the cookie and they came out great! Delicious cookies!

    These cookies did not make 28 of thembecause I popped one in my mouth before they even cooled, and before that I ate some dough. These are the bomb! They are easy-- the orange and almond extract compliment each other...don't skip the almond extract! I had whole almonds, so I blanched them myself. I boiled water and covered the almonds for 2 minutes. Instructions said to rinse in cold water, but I didn't. I pulled off the tip of the almond and squeezed the skin-- it popped right out!
