Easy and delicious, did spread a little, but otherwise, great cookies to make and share.

I used parchment paper. The cookies did spread quite a bit, but I enjoyed the flavor a lot.

Making these today, they flattened out. Also I baked them on wax paper, big mess, I had to peel them off and the paper stuck to the cookies. I think it meant to use parchment paper. Otherwise I added chocolate chips and almonds and finished off the other half of the batter and put. Them on a plane cookie sheet and they turned out better. However still hard to remove from the pan. Still delicious..I wonder what I did wrong that they flattened out so much?

I have made these 5 times so far. They have been a big hit!! I did decrease the almond extract to 3/4 tsp. I add an extra 1/2 cup of coconut. Sometimes I add chocolate chips, sometimes I add toasted almonds. So far, the chocolate chip ones have been the favorite. Love this super easy recipe!!

WOW!! if you like almond flavoring, this one is for you. I decided to use about 3/4 t. of almond flavoring instead of the 1 1/2 t. because I thought it sounded like too much. Just the small bit I put in is VERY strong and not good. I will try them again because I will only try 1/4 t. or try some vanilla.

I made these for my dad who is going through chemotherapy and it was a hit, calms his stomach. A friend referred me to them, these are not what you would expect a cookie to be, but still good!

I have a family member who has a nut allergy, can the almond extract be substituted with another?
