Great treat for my gluten free AND diabetic friends. Thanks, Sherri but now I'm dying to hear about your puff pastry recipe with almond paste!
H as anyone tried honey with these cookies? Would that even woork
I have made these cookies several times now. I have found that instead of beating the almond paste and sugar, it is much easier to use a pastry blender to mix. It gives a good crumbly texture and makes the rest of the process easier. Cookies have turned out great every time and disappear fast!
I have sister and granddaughter that need to be gluten free. They were thrilled to have these cookies. I did make my own almond paste from another TOH recipe, a little tedious to blanch the almonds but not hard, it was a lot cheaper. Will be making them again.
Fantastic! Even my kids loved it.
