Delicious. People who really love lemon may want to add more zest, but these were absolutely perfect for me. Thanks so much, Kit!

This recipe was surprising. It had such a refreshingly light taste and I loved all the spices. Next time I would maybe only add 1/4 T of nutmeg though with more almonds and a splash of milk. Also, I used vanilla extract instead of brandy. Yummmmm!

I substituted chopped pecans and cognac for several of the ingredients, and the results were pretty good. Another great recipe from Kit--way to go!
