Bravo Aliana, were wonderful and great taste.

These are the great sweet that I've tried. The third time I make them in my cup always have them and I am very happy that I found this recipe. Aliana Bravo!

I am very glad that you like:-) And we love them, but long ago I had not thought about them. You have to make them again:-)

I will surely try :) So you can add dried fruits like apricots, for example? These cookies soft for you or crunchy? Already in favorites :)

Yes, may I most like them with figs, but it is a matter of taste. Are crispy on the outside, but inside are tight and compact, ideal for coffee or tea or cocoa milk. Similar to kantuchinite, but not so hard.

I generally do not like dried fruit, but asked for to get the perception now is clear to me. Thank you :)

They got superb. Thanks for the nice recipe. Only one addition-be cut slowly and wholesale serrated knife, smooth break.

Thank you, Daniel, for the credibility of the recipe :) Glad you like. This knife is true - thank you for mentioning it. I slice them with electric knife, it is indented.

blanched almonds can they be replaced with another?

And blanched hazelnuts happens. The kernels are placed for a few minutes in boiling water, then allowed to cool to it. So brown skin swells and squeezing the kernel is *slipping away* from it. Thus obtained white nuts. With walnuts occurs very wrinkled surface and peel well.

made only with almonds due to lack of dried fruits were perfect and very tasty ideal for coffee.

Flower, look very good! I am glad, my dear, that you like :)

Easy and delicious. Thank you.

I am very happy :) The picture is great, and I thank you! :)
