As I read through the recipe, I noticed two ingredients that are usually in cookies were missing... salt and baking soda. I added 1/4 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. baking soda. The cookies were wonderful! They have a soft, tender texture, not to mention, they make your house smell awesome! I also reduced the amount of white chocolate chips, but that was mainly for personal preference. I thought baking them at a lower temperature for a little longer worked very well for this particular cookie. I will be adding this recipe to my "favorite cookie collection"! YUMMY!

These cookies are alright, I do like them better than all the other simular recipes on this site. They just were not the taste we were looking for.

My husband asked me to never make these cookies again! I sent him to work with a dozen of these and he ate every single one! My husband does not care for sweets and he said that this was his favorite cookie. Anyway.. he ended up asking me to make more for him. Great recipe.

I pulled the recipe yesterday and made the cookies yesterday and brought them to some friends, we meet every Monday night. They all said that the cookies were awesome.

Turned out well by taking another viewer's suggestion. Used 1/2 c. butter, & 1/2 c. Crisco, increased vanilla to 1 t. and decreased almond extract to 1/4 t.

I also used the 1/2 butter, 1/2 crisco and increased the amount of vanilla. This really helped with having a fluffier, rounder cookie as opposed to a flat cookie. I took them to work, and was asked all day how I got them so fluffy!

So....this recipe says it makes 12 (one dozen) I wanted to make 3 dozen so I tripled the recipe. We wound up with way more than expected, at over 6 dozen, but well worth it cause these cookies are delicious!! Plus they were to send to my mom, now I have plenty left for myself!
