    These are absolutely delicious! The only thing I would suggest is making sure you have parchment paper to line your cookie sheets with to make sure the bottoms don’t get too brown.
    Delicious cookies with tender texture and just the right amount of sweetness. Almond extract pairs wonderfully with the raspberry jam.

    These cookies are out of this world. They melt in your mouth. Not too sweet. Easy to make.

    I have been wanting to make these cookies for a while and finally made them tonight. The recipe is so simple and easy to make. I baked them for 13-14 minutes at 325 degrees as my oven runs hotter than most. My boyfriend ate 3 of them before I could drizzle the icing on them. He said they were so light and fluffy just like he likes them and they don't need the icing, but I added it and he loves them even more. I also love that I didn't need eggs for this recipe. A big hit! Thank you :)

    Quite good - my cookies were a bit chewy this time so I will need to experiment with time in the oven and such, but will make again! I used the glaze on half the cookies and preferred them without it.

    2017-12-16. Made dough night before. Removed from fridge 30 min before rolling. They did spread more than i would of liked probably because the dough was not as cold by the time i baked them. Great flavour

    Wonderful, has become one of the regular Christmas treats for my trays. Tonight I am substituting Seedless Marionberry Jam for a new twist
    I've made these countless times! Best shortbread cookies ever!! Love how easy it is to modify we always double the recipe in my house. We also have use different types of preserves like fig, blackberry and even pineapple!

    the perfect thumbprint cookies. adding the extra 2 tablespoons of flour was perfect to prevent too much spreading. i didn't have time to do the frosting but still everyones favorite. they disappeared in no time 😋

    These cookies were a bear. The chilled cookie dough was difficult to get into the correct shape, they came out a little lopsided. Then the drizzle of the glaze was just awful. I don't know how the person got it so perfect? Was it piped with a pastry bag? Mine looked crazy especially after my cookies were already weird looking. I just wish there was more "if this happens " information/advice/help after the recipe. I could've used it. I'm not a novice to baking and these cookies were ridiculous.
