I liked the TASTE of these cookies but when I took them out of the oven all the cookies combined into one VERY thin cookie and they stuck to the sheet! Well I suppose it was my fault. I probably just didn't put on enough oil. Besides they WERE delicious and they didn't last two hours in my house! These taste good but you should put more oil on the cookie sheets. Also I only had 1 teaspoon of almond extract so I used that and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla to go with it. As I said tasted great! Read More

The flavor is great but the dough wasn't stiff enough to extrude properly thru the spritz machine and when cooked they flatened out. I think there was a typo in the recipe as I have a similar recipe that calles for same butter 2/3 c. sugar and 2 1/4 c. flour. I'm going to try it again and add another cup of flour. Read More

I made the dough to take to my granddaughter to use with her cookie press. It stuck to the press and ran all over the pan into 2 big cookies--what a mess and disappointment for her-she's 6 yrs old. She thought they tasted good but I have never had a failure like this with any cookie and I've made several milion!! Read More
