i thought it was good but not great. having to refrigerate the cookies took much time to do.

18 mins. is way too long and I didn't get anything close to 72 cookies out of the dough. I'm quite disappointed that they didn't have more flavor and I even doubled the almond and vanilla. I'm wondering if Wanda fogot something.

I've made similar cookies before but when I tried to make these twice I was disappointed both times. They were almost impossible to roll out even after hours in the refridgerator & when they baked they flattened out. I would not recommend this recipe.

The flavor of these cookies is really good, but the recipe doesn't make fingers, it makes flat cookies. I was expecting something like a Mexican Wedding Cookie texture and shape. I think refrigerating the dough after forming and before baking may aid in them keeping their shape. I doubled the recipe and got maybe 30 cookies.

The flavor is very good, but rolling them into 1 1/2" rolls was very difficult. I may try them again and let them sit in the fridge overnight before trying to roll them.
