    Whisper's Note:

    I can't remember where I originally got this recipe from. There's a little bit of fussing to make them look cute, but it's worth it, especially for company! But even without the fussing, you can make them simpler and they still taste just as good. If you like almond flavoring, you'll love these cookies! (Prep time includes 1 hour chill time.)
