      Very tasty! I think I might have made these too thin as they snapped very easily when I took them out of the oven. They still taste good though!

      This are a simple and delicious, nut shorbread. I added 1/2 tsp almond extract for more almond flavor. I make a similar cookie but this are smaller and size, you do have to be careful not to overcook them as they go from not quite done, to very done very quickly.
