I'm going to give this five stars (really 4 1/2) although I did tweak the recipe just a bit. I noted the directions didn't tell you when to add the vanilla, but I added 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla and 1 tsp. almond extract to the wet ingredients before mixing in the dry..I'm sure most of you know to do this, but I thought that might mislead a unexperienced baker. These are perfectly soft and cut-out extremely well. They hold their shape nicely. Next time I think I may try all almond or all lemon extract. I frosted these with standard homemade buttercream frostings - one made w/ lemon and the other rum. Yummy!
