    Thanks for commenting on my blog!

    I’ve already seen your pictures on the Daring Baking forum, they are lovely!

    I would love to eat on of your almond and white chocolate filling cookie, if there are leftovers 🙂

    (nice blog banner too!)

      Thank you for the compliments!

      Unfortunately, there aren’t any Milans left, I think they were gone within a couple of hours 😉 I’ll have to make another batch soon! The almond/white choc ones were my absolute favourite, mmmmm!

  2. Here they are! I am in LUST with all of them, but like you – the white chocolate almond is my fav, I love that combo! Your Milanos are one of the best and most gorgeous Milanos I’ve seen in this challenge thus far. Beautiful photos..absolutely stunning presentation too! You rocked this!

      The almond/white choc is an absolute must!

      Thanks so much for the compliments 😀

      Your challenge was really stunning, I can’t believe all the different variations you made! Really fantastic 🙂 ^5 !!!

    All flavours look great. I found one advantage of using a gluten free flour was they didn’t soften as others including yourself had problems with.

    They look deliciously crispy! I also had issues with softening, and I think baking them twice (or longer) might be a solution. Love the mint-chocolate combo!

    I remember seeing these on the DB website and thinking to myself, these are it… The most beautiful milans anybody has made. And it’s still true. I still can’t wrap my head around how perfect they look, especially the lemon/orange ones. Beautiful job!

    Thanks for your comment! Can’t believe that’s your first challenge too!!

    I remember seeing these on the forum like Elissa! The chocolate/mint ones are really cool, reminds me After Eight chocolates ;D (or mint icecream with chocolate chips!)
