"Smooth, creamy and delicious! My husband doesn't like that much almond extract. I like it either way."

"These are amazing! I switched out peppermint extract for the almond and added crushed candycanes on top instead of hubby loved them! I will make tons of these as holiday cookie plate fill-ins! A definite must have recipe..."
