This is a very delicious cookie. Easy to make & was a big hit with everyone. I used the lemon flavoring and after baking I dusted the tops of the cookies with powdered sugar. The powdered sugar added a nice touch.

This simple cookie has been a Christmas staple for years at my house. It has a great almond flavor and is a classic!

Light Dreams, the only thing I liked about this recipe was the time efficiency, otherwise very bland and boring.
