I judge everything I make by whether it is a "make again" recipe. This definitely falls in that category. Easy to make and very good. I used 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 tsp. almond extract. Tasted great. Was a little leary of using 1 tbsp. of vanilla, seem like too much. Will be brave next time and increase the vanilla for comparison. 10 minutes exactly on the bake time. Also used parchment paper for the first time. Why haven't I used it before!! Cookies baked more evenly and were a dream to take off of the paper.

Lovely simple cookie. Made on 11/27/2011 for a play date with toddlers in attendance. Wanted something simple for the little ones. Mixed them up in my food processor-even easier! I made them larger, which of course took a little longer to bake.I also Increased the vanilla to 2 Tbsp and left out the almond because of the babies. Delightful cookie!

You can put these cookies together in minutes, the quickest easiest cookies that I know of. They have a perfect texture with just the right amount of crunch and have great flavor (but not too sweet). I keep cookie dough in my freezer and when I have unexpected company, I can make a pan full with no effort. I do cut down the almond extract to 1/4 teaspoon and use margarine instead of butter otherwise follow the recipe exactly as written.

Given the minimal work involved, these are great. I used 1/4 tsp of almond extract and I will probably either cut it in half next time or leave it out entirely because I find it to be very strong. I also patted them down a bit on the sheet before cooking. These ones turned out looking a lot nicer than the ones I let spread on their own.

A good cookie for few ingredients. I did not have the almond extract but will definitely put that in next time as I think it would improve the flavour. On the last batch, I ran out of parchment paper so did the cookies on a lightly greased baking sheet . I would not recommend that as the edges were rather burnt and the centers were not done. Thx Melissa.
