  1. I cut the recipe in half and used 1 egg. I also had ground almonds on hand so I wasn't sure how many cups ground would be 1 cup of whole almonds. After doing a little research online I ended up using 1-1/4 cups ground almonds (for the half recipe that I was making). Not - Read more ...
  2. Love this one
  3. Perfect chewy lttle cookie left out chocolate. Used 2 cups almond meal so didn't have to grind them.simply stired everything in bowl then used mini ice cream scoop to scoop and shape. Very easy thanks for recipe!
  4. Delicious and easy to make! I took them to a potluck and several people wanted the recipe!
  5. WOW I AM SO GLAD I TRIED THIS RECIPE EVEN THOUGH THE RATING WAS A FOUR. IT WAS A HUUUGE HIT WITH THE WHOLE FAMILY!

  8. I was on a wheat-free diet for a while and really missed cookies--wish I'd had these gems! They are scrumptious and with a food processor a snap to make. Gave a batch as a gift to a friend who's off wheat and she just adored them.
  9. This was the best almond macaroon recipe I found! I made them as part of my French display on Bordeaux at Foreign Language Day and by the end there was only one left. It was hard keeping my family away from them- they loved the almond taste. I left out the chocolate (because it didn't - Read more ...
