Crispy Almond Cookies

These Crispy Almond Cookies are very addictive. When I saw Esther & Mayck-law postings of these cookies,  I told myself I must bake therm and try. These cookies taste really good and I never regret finding time to bake them. The cookies are so crispy and the aroma is so fragrant. This is indeed a keeper. Thank you my dear friends for sharing this great recipe.
