Tasty light cookies that will be a nice addition to our Xmas cookie tray. What I especially like about these is that they have both vanilla and almond essence in them---yum! I followed the instructions precisely, except for adding 2 tablespoons milk to the butter mixture. Also, I baked them for 10-12 minutes at 375 d F. Tip: be sure to use a cool cookie sheet or cookies will spread. Thanks for posting this lovely recipe.
