My guys are so spoiled by homemade cookies that they are getting particular. Justin loves soft and chewy. I had already started the cookie's when I discovered that Don had used the last of the white sugar. Oh No! This recipe, made under duress.
"But I hit the soft cookie mark". Firm enough to store in the cookie jar/freeze. A new family favorite. You'll love them. There easy, drop and squish with a sugared glass. They remind you of a mix between an almond cookie and shortbread. You will also want to try these, favorites. Suzanne's Perfectly fast and easy Shortbread, Shortbread Stamped Cookies.
