You are supposed to fill them and then glaze ... the basic recipe is a very mild flavor all by itself! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Followed the recipe easily but they were much too loose to hold any shape. Tasted good but more like an old fashioned almond cookie you might get at a Chinese restaurant in the 1950's. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Are the supposed to taste so, umm....plain and bland? I ended up throwing them all out after trying one. Yuck. item not reviewed by moderator and published
