Notes

  • Almond extract!  Everyone says that it gives treats that cake batter flavor.  I’m not entirely sure I taste it, but I totally could be wrong.  Either way I think it gives a delicious taste, but even the tiny amount used here is strong.  So if you’re not super into that almond flavor I would just leave it out.
