Looking for a special treat? One cookie provides a lot of nutty flavor.
Plastic storage containers and resealable plastic bags help keep cookies fresh. Old-fashioned cookie tins also make perfect storage containers as along as they can be sealed tightly. Never store cookies in any kind of container until they have cooled completely.
How to Prevent the Dough from Sticking
Dip fork in additional granulated sugar before using to make the crisscross pattern in the mounds of cookie dough.
For stronger almond flavor, substitute almond extract for the vanilla.
