Now I will mention – they do have a SLIGHT almondy taste to them. That’s why I added a tbsp of vanilla.. to combat any major tastes left from the flour.

One tip I will say is that when you are mixing the dough, make sure you mix it extremely well. Ensure that when you have a firm dough, it’s not gritty. It should be smooth.
