These crisps or cookies literally took seconds to pull together once you have all the ingredients. Give them a simple whisk, mix and fold.. and they are ready for baking. My mom and I loved these cookies. We couldn't stop snacking on them once they have cooled and crisped up even more. And let me point out one thing -> there's definitely no guilt when you eat too much of these.. rather light cookies that use only egg whites!

Overall, great cookies for the almond fans out there(:

Taste: 5 stars out of 5 (almondy- sweetness)
Texture: 4.5 stars out of 5 (crisp and slightly chewy)
