I made these cookies also from the magazine last xmas as give-aways. They were excellent!!! I did not make earl grey ganache, instead just bittersweet chocolate ganache. Absolutely fantastic! I also received a lot of raving comments on them.
I don't know if I did something wrong, but these cookies came out SO GREASY! The only thing I could taste was the butter! I was expecting something like a florentine lace cookie, a crisp, delicate cookie with a delicious rich ganache. Instead the cookies were almost too brittle to handle and I had to leave them on paper towels to soak up the oil to even get them to be edible! Is this how they're supposed to be? What did I do wrong?
