This recipe is somewhat similar to a recipe called Chinese Almond Cookies with the exception that my recipe uses ground almonds instead of almond paste and sliced almonds on top instead of one whole almond. All in all, I personally like this recipe because it has more almond flavor. Another option for this cookie is to drizzle the finished cookies with semi-sweet chocolate coating.
