Loved these, and yes, I made a few alterations. I wanted my cookies to have that hint of almond flavor so I replaced 1/2 cup of flour with 1/2 cup completely crushed almonds (crushed in food processor until powdery but not pasty). I also doubled the vanilla and added 2 tsp almond extract (since some had said they were a little bland as is). Like others mentioned, I let the butter sit out until VERY soft - overnight actually - and the dough was a perfect consistency. Baked for 10 min. They came out perfect! Slightly puffed, slightly crispy edges and slightly soft chewy centers. There was a delicious flavor from the almonds and extract. Definitely would add the almond extract again even if I didn't have crushed almonds on hand.
