These cookies were awesome, not too sweet, not too bland. I added some chopped walnuts and everybody loved them.

From my German background, I use farina for dumplings as well as a pudding to accompany a cold fruit soup in the summer. The family was very pleased with these new cookies. I did replace the butter with a soy margarine as my granddaughter has a serious dairy allergy. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
