  Yvonne in in California  Nov 21, 2011
Would make this again.
I added an egg. I accidentally forgot the vanilla, but will use it next time. My oven took 20 minutes to bake. The final result was wonderful (even tho I forgot the vanilla). I definately will use this recipe again. 5 stars

Would make this again.
After reading the reviews I made a few modifications to the recipe. To keep the cookies from being dry I added ad egg. Problem solved. The bottom held together well. I also relplaced the vanilla extract with almond extract giving the cookie more almond flavor. Yum! 5 stars
