MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 3, 2014

I found this site due to this recipe. I was excited to try it. A very simple and fun recipe to make. The blend of almond, vanilla and cinnamon smelled delicious while baking. I did add a tiny smidgen more of each of these. They looked so pretty with their sliced almonds slightly toasted. As soon as they were out of the oven, my family was taste testing. They were surprised how good they were and had some more to see if their first impression was right. Half was gone before they cooled but then now slightly crisp they were found just as good. I really like how low calorie wise it is. I can justify taking another! Thank you for sharing a recipe that has now joined my favorites.
