[Nov. 2017. Taken from http://www.geniuskitchen.com/recipe/chinese-almond-cookies-348634 . I flattened them using a glass dipped in red sugar.]
*[Dec. 2017. Thirteen minutes seems about right. With my little purple disher, I get 41 cookies.]
[Jan. 2018. I used Bob's GF flour and a little xanthan gum to make a GF batch. I rolled them in sugar crystals or hundreds-and-thousands and didn't put the almonds on top.]
