    I didn't like the almond so I will try it with vanilla extract.

    I made these for a Valentine's Day Dinner and they were a huge hit. I would recommend using a bit extra almond flavoring though. You could even use different shapes of cookie cutters to cut the puff pastry for different holidays/occasions.
