Cinnamon Almond Strips Recipe

When I was young, I could hardly wait for the holidays because I knew these rich cookies would make an appearance on the cookie tray. Now I make them for holidays throughout the year. —Fred Grover, Lake Havasu City, Arizona

"I was wondering the same thing, I don't have a cookie press. I'll try rolling them out and cutting them into equal portions."

"sincerelysandy -- I'm sure if you ate the ENTIRE 120 serving, it just might NOT be diabetic friendly!!

"There is only 7 carbs, and if concerned use a mixture of sugar and Splenda, it bakes well. A cookie press can be found in many .99 cent stores..not professional, but handle ok"

"<p>You really dont need a cookie press...I have made these where I just cut them into bars and bake...just make sure you roll out evenly thin...if you have a pasta machine you can roll out equally thin then score into bars to is all about the thickness of the bars I think!</p> (with the pasta machine do not use a noodle attachment...just roll out large flat peices of dough that you can trim and score)"

"How can I make this if I don't have a cookie press? They sound yummy with two of my favorite ingredients - cinnamon and almonds."
