This was a pretty good variation of peanut butter cookies though I prefer the later to these. I would recommend rolling the balls of cookie dough in granulated sugar prior to baking (like pb cookies). It gave them more of a sweet taste. Other than that they are good.
Made these last night and the family loved them. I didn't follow the recipe to a T used tofu instead of egg and replaced granulated sugar with honey. I will be making these again and again! Great recipe.
I made a test run of these today for Christmas. They taste like peanut butter cookies only with a slightly different nut flavor (obviously). I could NOT get the nuts to work on top but then again I rolled mine into balls and then rolled the balls in colored sugars so that might have affected it. When I tried to place the nuts though the cookies cracked around the edges in a way that did not please me so I just did without the nut topper. If you're worried they'll be too dry use all AP flour. If you're worried they'll be too greasy then I'm not sure what to tell you because if anything they are under-greasy. They're certainly not dry or un-tasty; don't overbake them. For the record I like these a LOT better than peanut butter cookies. Thanks for the recipe!
The flavor was for the most part good but they just fell apart way too much! The dough seemed to be very dry so I added a bit of milk. They rolled into balls okay but if I tried to push an almond into them they just crumbled. And after baking they crumbled even more! I ended up dipping the uncooked balls into sugar which was a nice touch (I gave up on the almonds). I also used all whole wheat flour and margarine because I didn't have butter. That might have been why they where so crumbly...
Love this recipe!! I did one batch as the written and one rolled in granulated sugar and topped with hersey kisses with almonds....terrific!! My family loved them and I had a hard time keeping them away from 5 year old daughter. This one is a keeper!!!
