I made these when I lived in Sweden. I would serve them with ice cream or whipped cream. Great Recipe - 30 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Yummy - I used one heaped TS of ground almonds instead of the bitter almonds. I only got 20 cookies out of this recipe. - 28 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I love these little cookies, They are so simple to make and super fast. I did substitute pecans instead of the almonds. You really do need to watch the first batch to be sure your oven temp and time is right for them. They can burn easy. I used the smallest cookie scoop and got 36 cookies. - 14 Mar 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
