      Wow, did I miss something or is this a joke? I followed this recipe exactly and ended up with a crumbly floury dough that did nothing when I tried to pat it into any kind of shape. I managed to get it into somewhat squarish shapes, more through pressing because cutting wasn't working... I baked them and ended up with hot crumbly floury lumps that I ended up throwing out along with the rest of the "dough."

      I made these last evening after seeing the recipe in the BH&G 1998 Christmas Cookie magazine. They were easy to make and came out oh-so-cute. This is definitely a keeper cookie recipe.
