    FoodFromSicily's Note:

    I found this recipe on the Hershey website. I changed the original recipe to add extra almond extract because when I tasted the dough, 1 tsp didnt seem like enough. You can add more if you feel it needs even more of an almondy taste.

      I love almond cookies to begin with but this is the BEST almond taste ever in a cookie! I prefer cookies that aren't all buttery and rich and too sweet. These are substantial, nutty and satisfying whether you eat just one or (ahem) several -- like I did.
