These are really yummy cookies that we all enjoyed. Step 5 doesn't specify how large to roll the dough nor how thick the sliced cookies should be. So I winged it and split the dough into thirds and rolled each about 2 inches across and sliced the cookies about 1/4 inch thick. And that seemed to work out well. My oven runs a little hot, and 400 degrees produced a pretty crunchy cookie after 10 minutes of baking time. So I reduced the temperature to 375 and baked each batch for 11 minutes, and that was perfect. Thanks for sharing your recipe, xpbowling. Made for Fall 2011 Pick-A-Chef.
