"These cookies are not very attractive to look at & 2 teaspoons of almond extract is too a slightly bitter taste. They taste like chocolate brownies in a cookie! If I make them again I would leave out the almond & double the vanilla."

"These were very easy, and tasted delicious. I didn't have any almond extract, so I used a total of 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract instead."

"Not happy with the turn out of these cookies. They are flat and look like cow pies! Taste good that is true but not exactly eye appealing."
