I got these from her cookbook and was going to post them myself when i saw them here. I had no problems making them nor were they even close to burning. The only problems that i had was that i ran out of pine nuts and had to go get more. I had 20 people in my house and ended up making 5 batches of these cookies. They have become my fav and i dont even like chocolate chip cookies. If i could have they would have gotton 20 stars!!!
