Didn't use almond extract, just extra vanilla (husband doesn't like.). I liked these, however the DH did not. So...I won't be making these again.

Absolutely delicious! I added orange extract along with the almond extract, and I'm glad I did, but I'm sure they'd taste just as good without it. I put these in the freezer before slicing, but I still had trouble slicing. That, however, is not the problem of the recipe. They come out beautiful (once I squished them together) and they take a tad longer than directed--13-14 mins, probably bc mine were colder from being in the freezer. Thanks for the recipe!

I am getting ready to make these for a second time. I just love these. Tender, soft and yummy. I did add a little more orange zest then called for, I think. I just zested a whole orange. I am getting ready to make these with blueberry and lemon. I think that will be tasty!!

I did not have the amount of dried cranberries, so I topped up with anything I could find (mint choc chips, mini m&m's,etc) and even though the roll was hard to cut.. a bit of crumbling, oh my they tasted sooo good!!! Will definitely make them again!! Thank YOU Donna!!!

They were tasty, but we thought they lacked something. I ended up making them with lemon peel. After eating a few and thinking them a bit blah, I made a glaze with icing sugar and lemon juice to top them. Then they were amazing! I will bemaking them for Christmas for sure. Very colourful on a plate of sweets.

This recipe is a keeper. Made just the way it was told to make with the following exceptions: I used 2 tsp. of almond extract and 1/2 tsp of vanilla (just did the reverse of what the recipe called for) because I LOVE almond extract flavoring. The cookies turned out great, and I only chilled them for 2 hours, instead of 4. Good luck. They turned out great in appearance and taste great.

This cookie is wonderful. I did not change a thing. It makes a perfectly tender shortbread. The citrus and cranberries take it to another level. These will be on my Christmas cookie trays during the holidays because they are such a beautiful and simple cookie. Thanks for sharing this gem :) BTW will be trying this with lemon or lime zest and dried blueberries too.
