These cookies turned out really well, and the almonds helped to balance out the sweetness. I think I'll reduce the sugar a bit next time so they aren't too rich for my taste.

I decided to roll these out instead of slicing them. Based on the previous review suggesting that they were a bit sweet, I figured that I would be safe in kneading in a bit more flour and rolling the dough out on a floured surface - it was a good call. I then took an almond slice and pressed it into the center of each cookie. They baked up in 8 minutes, spreading slightly. They are chewy with crisp bottoms, a good spiced cookie! Thank you Iris!

This recipe is from the Betty Crocker Cookbook from 1949. It is a Christmas tradition. I usually leave out the nuts.
