I love the sound of this recipe implants try making it this weekend. So pinched!

I Rencher the comments and for those of you for finding that the dough was too sticky rather than waste it, add some more almond flour. Gently stir in two or 3 tablespoons at a time, or if very sticky go ahead and add like a quarter cup that may help. Generally it is because either the grind if you ground your own, is coarser or finer not enough almond flour went into The original better.
Also I have made many versions of cookies based on almond flour and egg whites etc. I have never wasted the dough. I've even had them run together while baking, so after removing them from the oven and letting them cool, I sliced them into squares or harlequins, and then rolled them in powdered sugar or cocoa or what ever was suitable to the better. No one was the wiser, And I actually received compliments on my delicious cookies. So do not despair if they're not exactly what you thought they should be, and try making something out of what you get. Sometimes it's even better! Baking is a science and art all-in-one, so don't be discouraged.
Thanks for sharing the recipe Heather. I an allergic to wheat, and wanted to find cookies that I could enjoy along with others. So I am making these for my holiday cookie plate. Thanks and Merry Christmas!
