"TOO EXPENSIVE, TOO FATTENING! I'm sure these cookies are great but I won't ever know unless two things happen: the Recession ends and I stop caring about my weight. I was all excited about this recipe at first because it has two of my favorite things: oatmeal and almonds. I purchased almonds (which I do whether or not I was making this recipe) and the almond extract at a local farmer's market to save money but just those two ingredients were $8. Then when I went to Publix and saw how much the almond extract was for just one small can: $5.55 plus the $2.69 Betty Crocker Oatmeal Cookie Mix, I realized that after it was all said and done I'd be spending around $20 for 24 cookies. These had better be some really great cookies, because in these times that is a LOT of money to spend on 24 cookies. Also, from a nutritional standpoint, they are very fattening. So I had to pass. I hope they are as good as the time and money spent warrant. They sure look tasty. Maybe one day I'll find out."
