These easy to make biscuits are packed with dried apricots and almonds. Ideal for an afternoon snack with tea or coffee.
I think those who found these spread too much were using real butter. It melts faster than shortening or margarine. Cookies made with shortening or margarine are thicker and often chewier than those made with butter. I made these with margarine and they came out fine. - 20 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This cookie was excellent. It was hard to eat just one. I toasted the almonds before chopping and adding to the recipe. Also used almond flavoring instead of amaretto. They disappeared. Will definitely be making again. - 12 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Great cookie!! My first pan came out a little flat so I had to add more flour(about 1/2 c. more) for them to puff. Nice taste and texture. - 03 May 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
