“This is a recipe from by request. I haven't tried it yet. May 27. I finally got around to trying this. I doubled the recipe. I used a 1" cookie scoop and got 34 cookies. I sifted the cake four and icing sugar before measuring. The almonds I ground up in the food processor. They were fine but too large to be sifted. I used regular canola oil. 12 T is about 3/4 cup. They were good but I don't think I'd make them again. I'd give them 3 stars if I was reviewing, UPDATE--My DH loves the cookies!! I guess I will be making them again.”
24 cookies
