Easy, pretty, and delicious. I recommend, as always, baking on parchment paper for easy cleanup and no sticking. I made the recipe exactly as written. Quadrupled it, in fact, for a cookie exchange. Once you've mixed the butter, sugar, and extract well, it's easiest to mix in the dry ingredients by hand.

Excellent! Normally I put cookie dough in the refrigerator in between batches but I do not recommend doing that with this recipe.
