    Sandy in Houston's Note:

    This recipe was printed in an advertising flyer for a local realtor. My neighbor brought some over after she made them and they were pretty dang tasty. These would make great cookies for St. Patrick's Day.

      These little gems are truly addicting! I made them for St. Patrick's day this year and within 24 my fiance and I had gobbled up the entire patch. I didn't have any almond extract so I subbed vanilla and they still were great. Very subtle flavor that leaves you wanting more. Thanks so much.

      This are so incredibly yummy! I experimented a bit. I only have a 2 tbs scoop so the first batched I cooked were a bit too big and underdone in the center, however the underdone center was like a pudding middle so they were still great. I didn't add food coloring (didn't have any) but the cookies came out green anyway (plenty of coloring in the Aldi-brand pistachio pudding). I noticed the sugar browned slightly during baking, and while essential to the taste (dough isn't very sweet), it didn't make a very pretty green cookie. I made these for Christmas so the last batch I made into thumbprint cookies using cherry preserves. They were the best and pretty too!

      These were good! I made them for St. Patrick's Day using greem colored sugar to roll them in. They are nice and soft. The flavor kind of reminds me of spritz cookies. A keeper!
