I love theses cookies. My mother-in-law made them once and they didn't turn out, they were runny and did not set up like cookies. But I decided to try them and they turned out GREAT!
Cookies were delicious. My grandchildren loved them. They keep asking me to make them another batch just for them and them alone. I have to hide them when I make them for myself. I decided that I will be making these for Our (my granddaughters and myself) favorite teachers. I know they are going to love them. They love it when I make them homemade cookies throughout the year. Thank you for this delicious recipe. Irene.
These cookies are wonderful! I increased the almond extract to 1 teaspoon, omitted the white chocolate chips and added in chopped almonds, I left the cookie batter in the fridge for a couple of hours so the cookies would not spread too much when baked. Great cookie recipe tunes! thanks Kitten:)
