My sister and I made these cookies for Christmas; in fact, we made two batches so we could share them with family. They will become an annual tradition. Everyone loved them! I only wish we had doubled the almond extract.

These cookies are really easy to make. I made mine about twice the size as the recipe calls for, a lot less work.%0d%0aThe taste delicious and are different than any I've ever made. I think they'll be added to our annual Christmas cookie recipe file! :)

Very easy. I used a level measuring teaspoon to make small, even cookies...ending up with about 60 total cookies (30 sandwiches). Additionally, I used ready-made frosting, adding almond extract and red food coloring. They were a hit at the cookie exchange I took them to!

This recipe was easy to make and my cookies did turn out looking like the photo! However, like others that have already reviewed this recipe, for this recipe to yield 90 sandwich cookies is generous. I was able to get 60 and they were small, but not tiny. I used extra almond flavor in the dough and added some strawberry jelly to the icing to color because I did not have any food coloring. The cookies still lived up to their name - Yummy!

These cookies are so easy to make. They are loved by everyone. Perfect size to be able to eat a few. They are great for kids to help make. My 3 year old helped make the balls and put the sugar on them. Would recommend to anyone.

These cookies are excellent, but a lot of work for little reward. I was careful to make 1/2 inch balls, but I only ended up with 30 sandwiches (60 cookies). I was a little disappointed because I needed several more cookies and it ended up taking me 3 times as long to get as many as I needed. I gave the recipe 4 stars though because they are really good cookies!

This recipe is fantastic! These cookies turned out so cute and delicate looking - just like the picture. And the possibilities are endless for different variations. I'm looking forward to experimenting. Tip - I used store bought whipped cake frosting for the filling instead of making it. I made two varieties - strawberry and vanilla creme. Both were yummy!

These cookies were wonderful! They were so easy to make and looked picture-perfect for our Christmas Party. My family loves the taste of almond, so I doubled the amt. that the recipe calls for and they tasted fabulous. During the party, I was asked countless times for the recipe and now my husband is begging me to bake up some more!

I liked this recipe a lot. The cookies are very light and have a nice almond taste.%0d%0a However, I found that the dough was quite crumbly. I only got about 45 sandwich cookies in stead of 90.

EVERYONE LOVED THEM!! The recipe says it will make 180 round balls but I only got about 90 out of it. I had to use double recipe for a cookie exchange but needless to say, they all went.
