This recipe calls for pecans and vanilla extract, but I didn't have any nuts; so, I substituted almond extract for the vanilla. Scarlett states that they will melt in your mouth and disappear...and boy, do they ever!!! My husband hid a whole bowl of these from our 14-year-old to make sure that he would have some after the New Year!!! I had to make a double batch to make sure I had enough to put in all of the goodie baskets to give for the holidays!! This recipe is DEFINITELY a keeper!! Thanks for a wonderful, buttery, nutty flavor, melt in your mouth, easy to make cookie!!! They are light and crispy, but they stay soft and chewy at the same time. It is very difficult to describe the texture of these cookies without actually tasting them. Definitely NOT A COOKIE TO BE SHIPPED OVERSEAS!!!!! Hand deliver ONLY!!!!!! BUT make sure you make plenty and include the recipe or you will have people bugging you all year to be baking them more!! Qudos to Scarlett for a wonderful cookie recipe, whether you call it a 'sugar' or a 'sandie', it makes no difference...it is a wonderful cookie, of that there is NO DOUBT!!!!
