These are very yummy and so easy to make!! my boys love them and they will become a regular!! I added vanilla essence and dropped a chocolate melt on top!!
I was really disappointed in these - all I could taste was the flour! My roommate took them to work and said a few people liked them, but most didn't.
These were soooooooo easy and soooooooo yummy! I used my cookie press and they turned out great! I also added a little food coloring to the dough for alittle fun! Thanks for the keeper!!
Awesome recipe! I made them for Christmas and my husband and roommate liked them. They were very crumbly after I baked them. It helped to let them sit for a few minutes to cool and get a bit firmer before transferring to a container. I added 1 tsp. vanilla extract to cut the flour taste a bit. still yummy regardless!
These are so good, and even better since there are only 3 ingredients which I always have! I used a pastry bag and pipped the dough on the cookie sheet, but next time I will use my cookie press. I added a couple chocolate chips to the tops of a few for DH, sprinkles to the ones for DS's and left some plain for me...nice to make a cookie that everyone loves! Will definately make again! Made for October, National Dessert Month in Photo Forum.
I didn't like this recipe. It tasted like flour. I would not suggest this recipe to a beginner cook (which is what I am...). I think I followed the directions, well. Once the cookies were in my tummy, I wanted more though. =)
taking advice of the joy of cooking, i swapped 1/3 cup of the flour for corn starch to make these more crumbly and melt-in-your-mouth. i think i should have done another batch! wow are these tasty! takes a while but the dough becomes quite workable and creamy
OMG... first of all these recipe is awesome.. and it does help if you READ how much butter you are putting in unlike i did and put 1LB of butter instead of 1cup. lol but fixed my error and doubled the recipe and it came out fine. It did come out a little crumbly but i was using it for my thumbprint cookies anyway and a little kneading went along way.As for the flour taste issue add a little vanilla or almond or even a little more sugar problem solved. Now here is the thing i love to bake but hate to measure, this is why i love this reciepe. butter- already measured. and flour and sugar u can measure in same measuring can. 1 1/2 c. flour + 1/2c sugar = 2C total..lol. I like to experiment with the batters i really like.. so i did.FYI: Make sure the butter is cold found out that the batter comes out better, I ran out of butter so i tried Butter flavored Crisco...UM well its good but not as good as the Butter, cookies will come out a little more crispy than norm and i find a little more greasy that dry as shortbread should be, plus if you shorting is room temp you get the "batter" consistency immed. instead of 10 min.,you can add nuts and dry spices ie. cinnamon, nutmeg, cake spice to make awesome little treats. used the same dough for almost all my cookies just added different addons. thumbprint cookies, snowballs, chocolate dippers, mint meltaways.. This is a very versatile reciepe.Anyway Great recipe and easy cookie base for all my xmas cookie trays recipes. Hope this helps
I don't like to put few stars if I can help it so with this reviews, I'll do no stars. This was a total disaster for me. I followed directions and ingredients exactly and I have ended up with a total mess and only 17 'cookies.' They are flat, and thin as paper. I might try again, but likely not.
These were good but you could taste the flour in them. I was happy that they were so easy to make. Just add some frosting and they taste better. Thanks for the recipe.
