These cookies are pure heaven. They made it to my top five favorite cookies… and that’s a big deal! I got the recipe from my friend, Jennie Whiting. She’s the one I got the Egg Roll recipe from too. Keep ‘em coming, Jennie! :) I made these for my Young Women (the girls in my church ages 12-18) and they were a hit, which says a lot since kids that age are pretty picky. I love the flavor of almond extract. These taste like buttery almond shortbread. They are so good!
