      So although mine dont look as pretty as the photos here, they did turn out perfectly, little crisp biscuits that everyone enjoyed. My oven is old and wonky which could explain my biscuits tending to spread more than I think they should have. Didnt affect the taste though!! Thank you for this recipe, made for International Agents of QUEST, China region

      These were great cookies. I ran out of eggs so had to skip the final step of brushing the glaze on the cookies prior to baking. But they were great even skipping that step. Thanks, Bayhill. Made for 2014 Culinary Quest (China).

      Delicious almond cookies! These are even better than the ones I love in my favorite Chinese restaurant. They were super easy to make and resulted in perfect and tasty cookies. I didn't think they would actually take 20 minutes of baking time, but they did! Thank you for posting. Made for Culinary Quest - China region - International Agents of Quest team.
