Mango Almond Biscuit

I was attracted by the picture in the cookbook and since then has listed it in my to bake list.Baked this cookies few days however it didn't out well. I'm not sure is it due to my fault or the recipe as the cookie was too flat or maybe I overbeat the butter. This cookies turn soft easily and the centre was a bit chewy. To make it crispier, rebaked it again & leave it in the oven to cool. Then it will be very crispy and even the center will be hardened. I suggest to reduce the sugar as most of them that tasted it commented too sweet. If you like butter & mango, this will be a very nice cookies. It's very buttery & fill with mango fragrance. I will definitely test it out again.
