Good, plain, straightforward cookie. I did not roll them out, but made about 1 inch balls and flattened, 12 min cooked them perfectly. Crisp and light. Perfect for dipping in coffee or hot chocolate. It would do quite well with other extracts other than vanilla (lemon, almond, etc)

These came out really good. I omitted the raisins and instead added a little bit of orange zest and the orange flavor came out so perfectly. After they cooled, I dipped one end in melted chocolate. Everyone loves them. Am going to make for the holidays this year. Also good with dusting powdered sugar if you do not like chocolate. I highly recommend the orange zest. A++++

I made this recipe for Thanksgiving and used leaf cookie cutters for fall and they were lovely. The taste and texture were excellent and everyone who ate them to loved them. The only suggestion I have is, if you add the raisins remember that you might have just a little difficulty cutting through them with the cookie cutters. I tried a second batch and pressed raisins onto the tops of each cookie after cutting and got the same delicious result with easy cutting. I will make these a lot. Overall great! What a different texture.
