I followed the recipe exactly, but I couldn't roll them out! The dough just kept falling apart. So I adlibbed and marbleized the 2 colours into round cookies instead. They were delicious! And everyone appreciated them in their Christmas tins of goodies!
Had a great time making these and was festive *yummy too*
unfortunately, despite following directions exactly (other than swapping the quantities of almond and vanilla extracts, as we wanted almond-y cookies), these were the greasiest, weirdest, most tasteless cookies I've ever made. I'm sorry to say it, but I don't understand what happened. They looked pretty decent, but tasted badly enough that I had to toss the whole batch.
Like the other reviewer, I used to make these all the time as a child and they were always my favorite. Great recipe to have young hands help with, as it's just like playing with play dough and is a fun way to participate in the holidays -- for both kids AND adults. Also, as the other reviewer states, the almond extract really makes the difference in this recipe and I usually add a touch extra, but that's just personal preference.
i remember making these with my mom when i was a child - now i'm making them with my daughter. the almond extract is key for our favorite recipe. thanks for sharing!
