I tried these for Christmas--they were easy to make and a big hit with the adults(not so much the kids). They are a drier, not so sweet cookie and make a beautiful presentation. I had a little trouble telling when they were done but the baking time was pretty much right on. These were very tasty!!! I will definitely make again!
