I've been making these for years. This is an excellent recipe & much easier than my old one. Less time consuming, and tastes just as great!

I made a big mistake by making these for a cookie exhange. If I had more time I would make something else. They are way to sweet. I only sprinkled them with powdered sugar. My son did not like them at all & he loves candy and cookies, JUST TOO SWEET. They weren't the perfect balls either.

Very interesting flavor. I didn't have any almonds, so I used chpped walnuts and I think that made it even tastier. The almond extract is easily detected and mixed well with the walnuts. This is another great addition to my Christmas Cookie tins that I give away.

Very very good! I added alittle more almond extract. Takes great with the chocolate. I bought a bag of kisses that were already unwrapped..they come in a bag of about 54. Very convenient. Great cookies.
