My new favorite! These were very tender and lightly sweetened. I used butter flavored shortening and vanilla (instead of almond). Yummy!

thes cookies were wonderful! i substituted vanilla for the almond extract, and topped them with a buttercream icing and sprinkles. my husband loved them!!!!

These were very good. I used vanilla instead of almond extract. Nice and soft, very tasty!

These were amazing! turned out excellent when my sister made them for valentines day! so soft and yummy!
