You know my love for almond cookies! I have made these and these previously.It's a cookie that I have given many titles, including "Chinese New Year Cookies", "Office treats', "the Easy Cookie", "To impress uni mates", "my hubby needs cookies", ...etc
I even managed to convert a friend who does not cook or bake to make some of these.
This version is more crisp. I added in almond meal instead of using flour only. Hubby said these were addictive and is his afternoon treat at work. I'm happy that it turned out better than expected.
