I favor subtle cookies like this. This hit the spot for Cherries and Blueberries With Frangelico Mascarpone #317907, and DH and I loved munching on them. These were so easy! Thanks for posting, Kittencal! Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.

Really nice. I used Splenda instead of sugar snd opted for more vanilla over the almond extract. I spread my teaspoons of the mixture a bit thin, and got just under double the amount stated. I cooked them for 10 minutes and they came out beautiful. The consistency was on the verge of chewy and crisp, and satisfied my cookie craving minus any calorie-dense flour. Thank you for sharing :)
