This tender, flavorful cookie from our Test Kitchen is made even better by being dipped in chocolate. The contrasting drizzle is a fancy finishing touch.

"I could not get the dough to hold together to make the log, and when I baked them they became very flat. I'm not sure, maybe there is an ingredient missing."

"These are indeed delicious, but whoever thinks you can make a single batch of these in 35 min (that's removing the excessive refrigeration time of 3 whopping hours) is fooling him/herself. It took probably about a half hour to make the dough (maybe a little longer), and then at least another 30-45 min to dip all of them in the candy afterward. All in all, anyone considering making these should be aware that, with cooling, baking, refrigeration, dipping, drying -- these will take at least a solid afternoon."

"I do a lot of baking but my son is very picky. He tried a cookie and said "Mom, these are the best cookies you've ever made!" wow, that meant a lot coming from him. Left out the almonds for the kids and my daughter had to do the chocolate designs on the top (i don't have patience for stuff like that)."
