Reviews for Gluten-Free Almond Cookies
"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."
