From Justine Furman-Olshan in Willow Street, Pennsylvania: "These delicious, crisp and nutty treats have been a favorite with our family for years—and they’re so pretty! When my dad retired, he took over all the baking in our home. He’d make these and say, ‘Put on a pot of coffee; let’s invite company!’ What an effortless way to recall what’s most important in life: family and friends."

"I made this recipe for a potluck and had two friends tell me it was a bit too sweet. I agree. However, I'm going to make it again. I will use Cool Whip instead of meringue and will toast the almonds. Also, I think apricot preserves would be delicious in this recipe."
