These cookies went well with breakfast tea. I didn't have any almond extract so I used 1.5 Tbsp. vanilla instead. Also, I found they needed more salt, probably twice as much as called for, which could probably be avoided if using margarine. Like the other reviewer said, these needed a lot of additional baking time: I formed 1-inch balls and flattened them to approximately 2-inch cookies and they required 12 - 15 minutes at 350º. Once cooled they have the texture of a sandie.
