These were great and something different! Reading the other chef's review I used a small amount of almond extract too and used ground almond in the coating instead of walnuts.

I really liked these. The 2nd time around I skipped making the coating and just melted some candy melts I had. I also used only 1 tsp vanilla and added 1/2 tsp almond flavoring just for fun. I'm also going to try freezing the baked cookies for make ahead convenience. Thanks a bunch!
