I added 1 teaspoon almond extract, and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. I scooped the cookies with a small cookie scoop and dipped the tops in colored sugar and pressed them with the bottom of a glass and they were perfect for valentines day

So rich & delicious yet so basic & easy to make! It was hard to stop eating these delectable little cookies!! I followed the recipe exactly & loved the crunchy outside, soft, cakey inside. I did end up with 4 dozen good-sized cookies.
