I have made this cookie many times and each and every one it surprises me the flavor because it haves all of what a cookie for me should have; crunch, sweetnes , easy to do and best of all they melt in your mouth.
Really easy - delicious. Great recipe when you want to impress without a lot of fuss. I bought almond meal at Trader Joe's, and substituted 3 cups of meal for the 4 cups of silvered almonds. Saved the food processing - just toss the meal with the granulated sugar instead of processing. Great time-saver.
