鲸鱼,
你的杏仁酥比较漂亮白皙,我的确是褐色啊 =(

Love Melody,
I believe it can be done. However, I did not use better in almond cookies before, so I am not sure how it will taste. Perhaps you can try out & let me know ;)

Jackie,
Thanks for your kind words =)

I also made this! Looks like Jess's recipe is kinda infectious! LOL

Mine showed quite a bit of crackling unlike yours which looked more or less intact. :(

Travellingfoodies,

Perhaps your oven tempt is too hot resulting in the cracks.. My oven is too hot as well resulting in the cookies turning brown instead of whitish like Jess :)
