    These are absolutely delicious...I followed the recipe closely with some minor modifications. The dough is sticky and they spread, so be careful when you place them on cookie sheet. I added extra almond extract (about 1/2 t) and toasted them (after cutting) longer than the recipe indicated. The flavor and texture was unbeatable. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.  -  08 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have made this recipe many times and it is excellent. Tastes very much like the ones my grandmother used to make.  -  28 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
