so light and delicate
Very tasty cookies that were easy to make. I have made these a few times and sometimes change the recipe a bit. Using almond extract instead of vanilla really gives it a nice flavor and I like the idea of cinnamon that was suggested and will give that a try as well. This is a recipe worth keeping.
These are AWESOME! I added peppermint extract and cinnamon. They tasted great and were easy to make!
I have made these cookies for several years, now. They are always in demand with my family and friends. I sometimes add 1/4 cup of ground pecans to turn them into a Pecan Sandy, and at Christmas, I add 1/4 cup of finely crushed candy canes. Great all three ways!
TASTY and EASY! I've found that pressing the dough flat on the cookie sheet prior to baking produces a crispy, better-tasting cookie.
I like that this recipe is flexible enough to allow for PLENTY of room to add ingredients to one's personal liking.
