YUMMMMMMM! The first time I made thes cookies I acidently grabbed the almond extract instead of the vanilla! I had alreaddy added 1 teaspoon when I realized it. So I just added 1 tsp of the vanilla. The result were beautiful and so yummy that every person who tasted these cookies asked for the recipe and I hav even forwarded it to friend of friends!! They last sealed in the freezer for soooo long that these are a must have holiday cookie!!!!
