I've been making these cookies for years, and it's a great recipe. I usually skip the chopped nuts, and substitute the 1/2 tsp. of vanilla for 1/4 tsp. of almond extract and 1/4 tsp. of vanilla. I use strawberry preserves for the filling. Just prior to serving, I sprinkle confectioner's sugar over the cookies. Great for the holidays or any special occasion! I would agree that the recipe yields far fewer cookies than it indicates. Still a favorite cookie recipe!
