    This isn't a review. But 2 questions. Could you use coconut butter instead of shortening? And Almond extract instead of Vanilla? Just wondering! Thanks!

    Very good. I used dark chocolate and sprinkled toasted almonds on the top.

    These were good, but a little too sweet for me. I made them again, dipped then in dark chocolate and sprinkled the top with chopped pecans while the chocolate was wet, so much better, for us anyway

    My mom made these last week. My kids loved them! So good. I think they would be good with an almond tucked in the middle.
