"I make this recipe every holiday season and everyone loves it. These cookies are light and sweet. They can be made a lot of ways with different extracts. Also the ends can be dipped into melted chocolate (they are very good this way)."

I was looking for a quick cookie recipe using ingredients I had around the house, and these were very quick and wonderful. Didn't have almond extract so I used lemon, and they were so light and airy, just very good. Will make them again!
I followed this recipe, also, and I too, had them melt out of shape. I added another 1/2 cup of flour (or so, to the right feel) and pressed them again with better results. They are a VERY TASTY cookie, so it was worth the trouble. I'll probably use the adjusted version as "spritz"-like cookies with the press.
I followed this recipe to the tee and it turned out as such a disappointment. It didn't hold shape at all and were really mishapen. I was ashamed to serve them for dessert but they were tasty. I rated this a 2 only because it was still tasty regardless of how horrible they looked.
This recipe was ok but cookies turned out more like wafers than fingers. Pretty tasty though.
Halloween trick - added green food coloring and then tipped one end of the fingers with slivered almonds to make scary "witch's fingers."
