    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!

    A friend of mine had found this recipe while looking for Irish recipes for St.Patricks day. So I went over and watched her make them. They were supper easy and so very mmmmm delicious. I will definately be making these for St. Patties day at my house. I think I might even put a merachino cherry on top. Thanks for sharring Sandy of Houston
