"This is one of my favorite cookie recipes. The almond extract gives the cookie a unique flavor that makes them, in my opinion, a little better than the rest. Because I like these cookies so much, I usually make them twice their normal size."

I baked these cookies last night for UFC 79 and everyone loved them. I did not have butter flavored shortening so I used 1/4 c butter and 1/4 c shortening with no adverse effect to the cookies. I also split the recipe in half before adding the candy-coated milk chocolate pieces. In half I added raisins and walnuts and in the other half I added the candy-coated milk chocolate pieces and walnuts. Both cookies were fabulous! The cookie dough tasted great also!

These were delicious cookies; however, I would love to know why the dough would not hold together very well. It was VERY crumbly and difficult to drop by spoonfuls. Otherwise, everyone loved them!

This is a very versatile recipe, and a very good one I might add. I found out, after starting the dough, that I didn't have enough candies, nor did I have almond flavoring. I used all vanilla and decided to fill the rest of the cup with the candies with pecans and raisins. I also didn't have any butter-shortening, so I put in a little butter for flavor and regular shortening. Boy, these turned out so yummy!! I will definitely use this recipe again as I know you can add almost any combination of things to the mix and it will come out yummy. Thanks Ellen, the kids, nephews, grandma and myself couldn't wait to pop them in our mouths after they got out of the oven! enjoy!
