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!

Hey, Good Cookin'! February 13, 2011

It's a great Almond cookie. I did make some changes. I added a 1/4 teaspoon more of each of the extracts. After the first batch the cookies looked a little too light for me. So on the second and third batch I brushed the cookies with egg white and upped the temperature to 325 degrees. We really enjoyed the cookies. Thanks for sharing.
