These are seriously good cookies. The only adjustments I'd make would be to add a bit more almond flavoring.

I'm giving these 5 stars even though I had trouble with the baking time because they are so tender and tasty! I made half a batch just as the recipe suggested, using a small cookie scoop with a yield of about 20 cookies. I smushed them down with my meat tenderizer for the design to about 3/8", and the final product turned out to be about 1/4" high and 2" wide. I say I had trouble with the cooking time, and I don't think it is with my oven, though I will test it to make sure it is calibrated correctly. After about 35 minutes at 250, I turned the oven up to 275 to finish off the first batch. The second batch I cooked for about 30 minutes at 275. You really just want them to start to turn golden brown. The end result is a very tender and light cookie---just perfect with a cup of coffee! I'm surprised these made it with only one review after a whole year of sitting there! I'm glad I found these! Thanks, Proud Albertan!
