These were great. I was able to cut out immediately without refrigerating and that means a lot to me. As usual, I rolled out dough between two sheets of wax paper and then cut out the cookies. This saves adding lots of flour during the rolling and makes things a lot easier all around. Thanks for a great recipe!

We always enjoy butter cookies after dinner with a good cup of coffee. These cookies were the best. I used just a bit more sugar, afterall, they are butter cookies not sugar, and used vanilla instead of almond extract and instead of chilling the dough, I made little balls and smashed them with the bottom of a sugared cup, they baked well, and my family loves them! Thank you for the very simple and GREAT recipe!

Very good butter cookie. Easy to make. I too added vanilla instead of the almond extract. Would make again.
