I thought they were a little dry, but this was my first attempt ever at baking for someone with diabetes. The "filling" was really runny and I couldn't get it to set. I pictured the filling creamier so maybe I was wrong in that aspect. Overall, they were okay....not my taste, but they weren't for me! LoL
Almond & Honey-Butter Cookies
From EatingWell: March/April 2009
This thumbprint cookie uses honey as the only sweetener and tender ground almonds to replace much of the butter found in similar cookies. Just a touch of butter mixed with honey in the filling gives it a rich flavor without too much saturated fat.

have made these several times, one of my go to recipes, will make now for a friends birthday as requested, very tasty
Instead of baking these for 13-15 minutes I hauled them out at around 10 and they turned out absolutely delicious.
I personnaly think this recipe is overloaded with a gigantic dose of honey. However, I would recomend 1 third of a cup. This recipe only seems slightly better than the original.
I made this recipe but did substitutions for my personal needs. I used Namaste Foods Gluten Free Perfect Flour Blend in place of the all purpose and whole wheat flour, I used Trader Joe's Almond flour instead of grinding rosted almonds, and filled the thumbprints before cooking with homemade low sugar strawberry fruit spread. I followed the rest of the recipe as written. I found the flavor and consistency to be great. My 6 year old loved them. Next time I will try with only 1/2 c of honey in the batter as I found these too sweet.
