I cooked these for 10 minutes. They have a delightful chewiness to them. The almond extract added such a nice flavor too. Delicious!

This is an easy recipe to make and my family loved it. The cookies are very crunchy and not so sugary sweet. I will definitely make it again. I have sent this recipe to all my family members you cannot have gluten.
