Top Review by mary winecoff

I made these last night for a college student who helped me with my computer. I lliked them because they didn't make a huge amount and they were quick to throw together. Next time I might add a little almond extract (I like the taste of almond) to heighten the almond flavor. Thanks for a good recipe!
