    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.

      Absolutely SUPER! I used some of my smaller cutters, approx. 1" -- the end result was over 8 doz. I have NO idea how many became MIA as I was working in the kitchen and family members came through. I know they never hesitate to take at least 6 per snatch! Recipe is now laminated and pinned to my recipe cabinet. (Hubby took the 2 cabinet doors down from above my work area, where all my flours and baked goods are kept, and covered the middle of the door in corkboard, leaving only the frame showing, so my favorites are always there and I no longer spill things on them. He is a REAL sweetie!) I would recommend this recipe to ANY level of cook/chef - the results are unforgettable!) ~Lady~

      I have to give this 5 stars. Unfortunately I overbaked them so I only get 3 1/2 stars!! 25 minutes maximum would be the baking time and I'm sure they would be perfect.
