Fantastic make ahead cookies. Let sit a couple days and they just get richer! Family favorite. We use tiny cutters for fancy cookies.

These were beautiful. Mine were very dry tho, maybe something about the dry Alberta air, so I added an extra egg and they came together well. Got about 6 dozen medium cookies.
