Almondy Warmth Cookies

Rated as 4.38 out of 5 Stars

"I was pleasantly surprised when my late night sugar munchies concoction tasted fabulous. They're cake-like; barely crisp around the edges and so soft inside that the center will literally melt in your mouth. Mom called them the best cookies she'd ever tried. You should try them."

These turned out really good! I didn't have nutmeg, so I used 1 t allspice instead. I also used vegan sour cream, and vanilla-nut extract instead of the bourbon. I also added some white and dark...
