These are so yummy!! The added flavoring of the almond extract gives it a great touch! Soooo good!

My mom and I make these every year - they're great and so pretty!

Nice cookie. Easy to make too. We think these look very good as part of a Christmas tray. I really wonder about the 300 degree temperature though. Have E-mailed the chef to confirm.

I used to make these every year with my mom and my little sister but my mom moved after I left home and lost the recipe. I was so upset because they were always my favorites. And this recipe was perfect. 8 minutes was a perfect time. The dough was perfect to work with. The taste . . . to die for! Thanks so much for posting a fantastic recipe! *Note: when you remove these from the baking sheet be careful as they do break easily.
