Notes

I adapted this recipe only slightly. The original called for almond extract, but other reviewers said that flavor was too strong. I live in a humid climate and the Eagle brand did spread out some, which other reviewers complained about too and one mentioned adding a Tbsp or two of flour and that seemed to fix the problem. I didn't try the flour, but will next time.
