      These are the cookies that I remember. Another recipe had salt in the ingredient list and when I baked them they were poofy and chewy. These are buttery crisps that are flakey and crunchy. Yeeeesssss! These are the ones.

      Excellent! a nice crisp, delicate bite that almost melts in your mouth. I cooked mine for 15 minutes and called them done. So easy and quick and a big plus for me is they are not overly sweet. Thanks for sharing, KimMinn. Made for My 3 Chef's event.
