    I have been making these cookies since 2003 before the recipe was even rated. Because I love the taste of almond extract and raspberries together it sounded like the perfect recipe. Everywhere I take these cookies people cannot stop eating them. This is the best recipe ever; I give them as gifts during the holidays, take them to church activities or luncheons, etc., and these cookies are always a HIT!!! When I get ready to leave and retrieve my plate, it is always empty. Thanks so much for sharing such a great recipe!
