Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well.

I just baked those-and I love them!!! I did not have almond extract, but i did have regular almond slices as well as the other ingredients. Instead of butter though, i had to use margarine - and they still turned out to be perfect! I did not even have to drizzle them.We enjoyed them without the glaze. Amazingly tasty, soft, and interesting cookies. Thank you!.
Thank~you!!!I made these toward the end of baking this Christmas seasonI baked about 1200 cookies!!!!and these received a wonderful response . Absolutely will be made again. I've had a few requests already. Thank~you LandO'Lakes for this wonderful site. :Molly
