My mother, Eric, and my youngest daughter's father loved these more than any other cookie going. When I dug this recipe out and used it yesterday I was unaware that Eric's grandmother used to make some cookies like these but without the almond extract. It is the almond that makes these.

They remind me of the cookies that show up once a year near Christmas time only those are hard and dry.
