Recipe by Michelle S.
I found this recipe in LHJ. This is suitable for diabetics. Four cookies equal 1 starch exchange.

I reviewed these earlier, they are very good,BUT, after setting for while they don't have as flavor. Next time I make them I am doubling the almond extract OR using Orange or Lemon Zest for more flavor. My DH is a diabetic so I will be making them again.
