  • Thank you for this recipe. it was JUST what I was looking for & remembered from when I was a child. I can't WAIT to bake these with my daughter tomorrow. I've browsed zillions of recipes; yours was THE ONE!!!

  • I enjoyed this recipe very much. After making one batch, I decided to substitute the 1 tsp of vanilla extract for 1/2 tsp vanilla plus 1/2 tsp almond extract. I found it added a richer flavor to the cookie. Thank you for your website!
