and gather into a ball.

important to make them 12 inches long and you can put them side by side on
the same cookie sheet.)

to a boil. Add the almond extract and remove from heat.

4. Immediately stir in the flour and mix until smooth.

5. Add the eggs, one at a time, combining thoroughly after each addition.

7. When partially cool, drizzle with icing. Add nuts if desired.
