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!.
