I requested this recipe and when I made them I found out that these are THE BEST cookies. They stay soft and full of flavor. I used almond extract instead of vanilla and absolutely loved the results. You can make these cookies as big or small as you like, and the Page's Buttercream Frosting is the perfect frosting for these cookies!!
