    I've made these cookies both ways, either left in the ball state or flattened with a fork. They're delicious both ways. I also change the flavoring. Instead of adding vanilla I add pure almond flavoring. You may also change the kind of nuts you add. If you're adding the almond flavoring add chopped almonds or chopped hazelnuts.
