I ended up making two different almond butter cookies today; and between the two, this one was the tastiest. Nice and crisp and buttery! I didn't have lemon extract, so I used a teaspoon each of vanilla and almond extract. However, comparatively, the other recipe was easier. Truth be told, if I wasn't comparing, I would have given this recipe 5 stars. Thank you Nancy!
