I substituted amaretto liquer for the congac and found these to be very dry. They're good with tea though. Read More

This recipe was surprising. It had such a refreshingly light taste and I loved all the spices. Next time I would maybe only add 1/4 T of nutmeg though with more almonds and a splash of milk. Also I used vanilla extract instead of brandy. Yummmmm! Read More

I substituted chopped pecans and cognac for several of the ingredients and the results were pretty good. Another great recipe from Kit--way to go! Read More
