Orchid - can you describe the texture of the cookie? Crisp throughout?

I made them yesterday and boy are they GORGEOUS. HUGE! And the almond flavor is fantastic.
However, I 1) used butter instead of shortening (might have been a big mistake) and 2) not sure I cooked them long enough - I didn't really brown them because I tend to like a soft cookie. But I'm thinking these should have been crisp.
When I saw the picture (when you first posted) it looked JUST like the cookie that my mom used to make a special trip for, to a really dive convenience store near U of Michigan, for those and comics (ARCHIE!) for me. I swooned over them! As she and I reminisced yesterday, we both think they were crispy.
