    Great tasting & so easy to make! I also like the taste of almond so took a tip from one of the other reviews & almost doubled the amount of almond extract! Definitely a winning recipe, the fruits of which I shared during a recent potluck! Thanks for posting this great recipe! [Made & reviewed in the current Let's P-A-R-T-Y! event]

    an ok recipe. I followed the instruction exactly. first , it is not sweet enough. secondly when cutting in warm , it break down. I believe if the almon dis roasted , and sugar added, it could pump to 4.5 star. Thank you for sharing though.

    Absolutely wonderful! I wanted to make some shortbread and had 1/2 cup of almonds, so happily, my recipe search led me to this recipe! Great texture and flavor! I did increase the almond extract to 1 tsp. as suggested by previous reviewers and loved the results. I also very lightly toasted the almonds and cooled before patting on the top of the unbaked shortbread. Probably not needed, but I really like the toasted almond flavor and wasn't sure if the baking time would be enough. Great recipe!
