    This is a tasty treat from Martha Stewart Holiday Cookies 2005. It doesn't make a lot of cookies, but it's super easy.

      Fantastic! I love how easy this is and how decadent the outcome is! I used a pastry cutter and cut the butter in until it resembled coarse meal or fine breadcrumbs. I love a recipe that inspires me to come up with alot of ideas, such as different dried fruit, nuts, chocolate, etc, as this one does - beautiful!! Thanks so much for posting this!

      Very good. I like the fact that it makes a small amount. I made as directed. Mine baked in exactly 30 minutes. Thanks Az G. Made for Ausie Swap #27.

      Made a double batch for a group I'm hosting tonight, & know they'll be a big success (I've already had 4 of them, so . . .)! Definitely worthy of the holiday gift basket, or company or the bake sale! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my swapmates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #25]
