    So pleased you put up this recipe, I forgot to order mine and can't have Easter without! I've already got almond meal, have you ever tried this or do you think it would be better grinding your own.

     

    Thanks

  • Very delicious. Had to taste

    Submitted by Tollisfamily on 3. April 2015 - 22:15.

    Very delicious. Had to taste test one straight out of the oven. Tasty without icing but can't wait to try with it iced too. I had to use the spatula to help mix the dough but other than that, there were no issues. Great Easter gift idea. Thanks for posting and sharing your recipe Ladybeetlez!  Cooking 7
