Top Review by Ali Flower

Thank you!! This is one of my family's favorite recipes for Christmas cookies and I lost the card that the recipe was on. This looks just like the recipe that I had but I substitute vanilla extract for the almond extract because my brother's allergic to nuts. These are great, quick and easy. And very addictive!
