Reviews for Almond Sandies
"Makes a very crisp, very light cookie. Tastes very buttery and yummy. Can't go wrong with this recipe!"
"Dough was just dry crumbles that did not 'stick' together to form cookies to drop on the sheet. I actually wondered if eggs or liquid had been inadvertently omitted from the recipe. I adjusted the recipe to make theToffee Almond Sandies. That dough turned out as expected."
