These were fantastic! Used 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract. Can't imagine flavor if only 3 drops. These were great, would make an awesome Christmas cookie.

This was a very tasty cookie. It's not too sweet unlike many cookies. I absolutely love this recipe and it will be a regular here in my abode. I used almond slivers instead of grated almonds. Turned out quite yumm. Thanks for a delicious, perfectly textured, gorgeous cookie recipe! Full moon, new moon, any moon! This would be DELICIOUS with pecans and pecan or vanilla extract instead of the almond flavor. Especially if you love Pecan Sandies! I only refrigerated the dough for 15 minutes. The dough seems perfect for molding as soon as you finish blending ingredients.

Good to see another moon girl here. I like these rolled in powdered sugar!
